Summaries for CCR3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CCR3 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a receptor for C-C type chemokines. It belongs to family 1 of the G protein-coupled receptors. This receptor binds and responds to a variety of chemokines, including eotaxin (CCL11), eotaxin-3 (CCL26), MCP-3 (CCL7), MCP-4 (CCL13), and RANTES (CCL5). It is highly expressed in eosinophils and basophils, and is also detected in TH1 and TH2 cells, as well as in airway epithelial cells. This receptor may contribute to the accumulation and activation of eosinophils and other inflammatory cells in the allergic airway. It is also known to be an entry co-receptor for HIV-1. This gene and seven other chemokine receptor genes form a chemokine receptor gene cluster on the chromosomal region 3p21. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described.

GeneCards Summary for CCR3 Gene

CCR3 (Chemokine (C-C Motif) Receptor 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CCR3 include aids dementia complex and erdheim-chester disease. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Akt Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include chemokine receptor activity and C-C chemokine receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is CCR7.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CCR3 Gene

  • Receptor for a C-C type chemokine. Binds to eotaxin, eotaxin-3, MCP-3, MCP-4, RANTES and MIP-1 delta. Subsequently transduces a signal by increasing the intracellular calcium ions level. Alternative coreceptor with CD4 for HIV-1 infection

Tocris Summary for CCR3 Gene

  • Chemokines (chemotactic cytokines) belong to a family of chemoattractant molecules involved in the directed migration of immune cells. Over fifty human chemokines have been identified that can be categorised into four groups; CC, CXC, CX3C and C (XCL1 and XCL2); depending on the spacing of their first two cysteine residues. Chemokines exert their effects by binding to G-protein-coupled chemokine receptors on the surface of cells, predominantly leukocytes. Eighteen human chemokine receptors have been identified that are classified according to the class of chemokines that they bind. The major function of chemokines is to regulate leukocyte trafficking in hematopoiesis and in innate and adaptive immunity. Other functions include angiogenic activity, apoptosis, T-cell differentiation and phagocyte activation. Inadvertent activation of chemokine receptors leads to autoimmunity by inappropriately targeting self antigens for destruction by cytotoxic T-cells and macrophages.

    • Overexpression of CCR3 together with its ligands appears to be a characteristic of ulcerative colitis (UC). The production of CCR3 ligands by human colonic epithelial cells suggests further that the epithelium can play a role in modulating pathological T-cell-mediated mucosal inflammation (PubMed:21077277).
