Summaries for FDCSP Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FDCSP Gene

  • This gene encodes a small secreted protein that is expressed in follicular dendritic cells. This protein specifically binds to activated B cells, and functions as a regulator of antibody responses. It is also thought to contribute to tumor metastases by promoting cancer cell migration and invasion. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2011]

GeneCards Summary for FDCSP Gene

FDCSP (Follicular Dendritic Cell Secreted Protein) is a Protein Coding gene.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FDCSP Gene

  • Can bind to the surface of B-lymphoma cells, but not T-lymphoma cells, consistent with a function as a secreted mediator acting upon B-cells
