Summaries for LILRA1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for LILRA1 Gene

  • This gene encodes an activating member of the leukocyte immunoglobulin-like receptor (LIR) family, which is found in a gene cluster at chromosomal region 19q13.4. The encoded protein is predominantly expressed in B cells, interacts with major histocompatibility complex class I ligands, and contributes to the regulation of immune responses. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, May 2013]

GeneCards Summary for LILRA1 Gene

LILRA1 (Leukocyte Immunoglobulin Like Receptor A1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Immunoregulatory interactions between a Lymphoid and a non-Lymphoid cell and Immune System. GO annotations related to this gene include transmembrane signaling receptor activity and antigen binding. An important paralog of this gene is LILRA2.
