This gene encodes a multi-pass membrane protein that belongs to the CXC chemokine receptor family. It is expressed in mature B-cells and Burkitt's lymphoma. This cytokine receptor binds to B-lymphocyte chemoattractant (BLC), and is involved in B-cell migration into B-cell follicles of spleen and Peyer patches. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011]
GeneCards Summary for CXCR5 Gene
CXCR5 (C-X-C Motif Chemokine Receptor 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CXCR5 include Burkitt Lymphoma and Lymphoma. Among its related pathways are PEDF Induced Signaling and Peptide ligand-binding receptors. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and C-X-C chemokine receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is CXCR3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CXCR5 Gene
Cytokine receptor that binds to B-lymphocyte chemoattractant (BLC). Involved in B-cell migration into B-cell follicles of spleen and Peyer patches but not into those of mesenteric or peripheral lymph nodes. May have a regulatory function in Burkitt lymphoma (BL) lymphomagenesis and/or B-cell differentiation.
