Summaries for CSF3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CSF3 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a cytokine that controls the production, differentiation, and function of granulocytes. The active protein is found extracellularly. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]

GeneCards Summary for CSF3 Gene

CSF3 (Colony Stimulating Factor 3 (Granulocyte)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CSF3 include refractory anemia with excess blasts in transformation and adult lymphoma. Among its related pathways are PI3K-Akt signaling pathway and Akt Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include enzyme binding and growth factor activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CSF3 Gene

  • Granulocyte/macrophage colony-stimulating factors are cytokines that act in hematopoiesis by controlling the production, differentiation, and function of 2 related white cell populations of the blood, the granulocytes and the monocytes-macrophages. This CSF induces granulocytes
