GeneCards Summary for CXCL6 Gene
CXCL6 (Chemokine (C-X-C Motif) Ligand 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CXCL6 include periodontal disease. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Akt Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include heparin binding and chemokine activity. An important paralog of this gene is PF4.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CXCL6 Gene
Chemotactic for neutrophil granulocytes. Signals through binding and activation of its receptors (CXCR1 and CXCR2). In addition to its chemotactic and angiogenic properties, it has strong antibacterial activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria (90-fold-higher when compared to CXCL5 and CXCL7).
