Summaries for TRAC Gene

GeneCards Summary for TRAC Gene

TRAC (T Cell Receptor Alpha Constant) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TRAC include immunodeficiency 7, tcr-alpha/beta deficient and tcr-alpha-beta-positive t-cell deficiency. Among its related pathways are Class I MHC mediated antigen processing and presentation and Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein. GO annotations related to this gene include peptide antigen binding and MHC protein binding.

  • Immunodeficiency 7 (IMD7) [MIM:615387]: A primary immunodeficiency disorder manifesting with recurrent respiratory infections, candidiasis, diarrhea, and failure to thrive. Patients show a clear predisposition to herpes viral infections, and features of immune dysregulation, including hypereosinophilia, vitiligo, and alopecia areata. Other features include lymphadenopathy and hepatosplenomegaly. CD3+ T-cells express TCR-gamma/delta, but little or no TCR-alpha/beta. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21206088}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
