Summaries for CXCL9 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CXCL9 Gene

  • This antimicrobial gene encodes a protein thought to be involved in T cell trafficking. The encoded protein binds to C-X-C motif chemokine 3 and is a chemoattractant for lymphocytes but not for neutrophils. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2014]

GeneCards Summary for CXCL9 Gene

CXCL9 (Chemokine (C-X-C Motif) Ligand 9) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CXCL9 include lymphomatoid granulomatosis and malaria. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Akt Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include cytokine activity and chemokine activity. An important paralog of this gene is CXCL10.
