GeneCards Summary for CD22 Gene
CD22 (CD22 Molecule) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CD22 include refractory hematologic cancer and early yaws. Among its related pathways are Immune System and B Cell Receptor Signaling Pathway (WikiPathways). GO annotations related to this gene include carbohydrate binding. An important paralog of this gene is SIGLEC1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CD22 Gene
Mediates B-cell B-cell interactions. May be involved in the localization of B-cells in lymphoid tissues. Binds sialylated glycoproteins; one of which is CD45. Preferentially binds to alpha-2,6-linked sialic acid. The sialic acid recognition site can be masked by cis interactions with sialic acids on the same cell surface. Upon ligand induced tyrosine phosphorylation in the immune response seems to be involved in regulation of B-cell antigen receptor signaling. Plays a role in positive regulation through interaction with Src family tyrosine kinases and may also act as an inhibitory receptor by recruiting cytoplasmic phosphatases via their SH2 domains that block signal transduction through dephosphorylation of signaling molecules.
