Summaries for CD24 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CD24 Gene

  • This gene encodes a sialoglycoprotein that is expressed on mature granulocytes and B cells and modulates growth and differentiation signals to these cells. The precursor protein is cleaved to a short 32 amino acid mature peptide which is anchored via a glycosyl phosphatidylinositol (GPI) link to the cell surface. This gene was missing from previous genome assemblies, but is properly located on chromosome 6. Non-transcribed pseudogenes have been designated on chromosomes 1, 15, 20, and Y. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2014]

GeneCards Summary for CD24 Gene

CD24 (CD24 Molecule) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Developmental Biology and L1CAM interactions. GO annotations related to this gene include protein kinase binding and carbohydrate binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CD24 Gene

  • Modulates B-cell activation responses. Signaling could be triggered by the binding of a lectin-like ligand to the CD24 carbohydrates, and transduced by the release of second messengers derived from the GPI-anchor. Promotes AG-dependent proliferation of B-cells, and prevents their terminal differentiation into antibody-forming cells.

Function for CD24 Gene

Molecular function for CD24 Gene

GENATLAS Biochemistry:
cell differentiation antigen CD24,glycosyl phosphatidylinositol (GPI) linked membrane sialoglycoprotein,identified by monoclonal antibodies BA-1,VIB-E3,expressed on granulocyte,B lymphocyte,brain,kidney,regenerating muscle,(? involved in signal transduction),with cell-type specific promoter activity in small cell lung cancer
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Function:
Modulates B-cell activation responses. Signaling could be triggered by the binding of a lectin-like ligand to the CD24 carbohydrates, and transduced by the release of second messengers derived from the GPI-anchor. Promotes AG-dependent proliferation of B-cells, and prevents their terminal differentiation into antibody-forming cells.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Induction:
Expression is lost when primary B-cells are induced to differentiate in antibody-forming cells.

Disorders for CD24 Gene


  • Multiple sclerosis (MS) [MIM:126200]: A multifactorial, inflammatory, demyelinating disease of the central nervous system. Sclerotic lesions are characterized by perivascular infiltration of monocytes and lymphocytes and appear as indurated areas in pathologic specimens (sclerosis in plaques). The pathological mechanism is regarded as an autoimmune attack of the myelin sheath, mediated by both cellular and humoral immunity. Clinical manifestations include visual loss, extra-ocular movement disorders, paresthesias, loss of sensation, weakness, dysarthria, spasticity, ataxia and bladder dysfunction. Genetic and environmental factors influence susceptibility to the disease. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:14657362}. Note=Disease susceptibility may be associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
