Summaries for CXCL10 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CXCL10 Gene

  • This antimicrobial gene encodes a chemokine of the CXC subfamily and ligand for the receptor CXCR3. Binding of this protein to CXCR3 results in pleiotropic effects, including stimulation of monocytes, natural killer and T-cell migration, and modulation of adhesion molecule expression. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2014]

GeneCards Summary for CXCL10 Gene

CXCL10 (Chemokine (C-X-C Motif) Ligand 10) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CXCL10 include peritoneal carcinoma and endotheliitis. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Akt Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include receptor binding and cAMP-dependent protein kinase regulator activity. An important paralog of this gene is CXCL9.

Function for CXCL10 Gene

Molecular function for CXCL10 Gene

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Function:
Chemotactic for monocytes and T-lymphocytes. Binds to CXCR3
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Induction:
By IFNG/IFN-gamma. A diverse population of cell types rapidly increases transcription of mRNA encoding this protein. This suggests that gamma-induced protein may be a key mediator of the IFNG/IFN-gamma response
