Summaries for CXCL6 Gene

GeneCards Summary for CXCL6 Gene

CXCL6 (C-X-C Motif Chemokine Ligand 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CXCL6 include Tonsillitis and Mastitis. Among its related pathways are Peptide ligand-binding receptors and ERK Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include heparin binding and CXCR chemokine receptor binding. 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).
