Summaries for CCL7 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CCL7 Gene

  • This gene encodes monocyte chemotactic protein 3, a secreted chemokine which attracts macrophages during inflammation and metastasis. It is a member of the C-C subfamily of chemokines which are characterized by having two adjacent cysteine residues. The protein is an in vivo substrate of matrix metalloproteinase 2, an enzyme which degrades components of the extracellular matrix. This gene is part of a cluster of C-C chemokine family members on chromosome 17q. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CCL7 Gene

CCL7 (C-C Motif Chemokine Ligand 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CCL7 include Stachybotrys Chartarum and Acute Contagious Conjunctivitis. Among its related pathways are Peptide ligand-binding receptors and ERK Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include heparin binding and CCR1 chemokine receptor binding. An important paralog of this gene is CCL2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CCL7 Gene

  • Chemotactic factor that attracts monocytes and eosinophils, but not neutrophils. Augments monocyte anti-tumor activity. Also induces the release of gelatinase B. This protein can bind heparin. Binds to CCR1, CCR2 and CCR3.
