Summaries for CD40LG Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CD40LG Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is expressed on the surface of T cells. It regulates B cell function by engaging CD40 on the B cell surface. A defect in this gene results in an inability to undergo immunoglobulin class switch and is associated with hyper-IgM syndrome. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CD40LG Gene

CD40LG (CD40 Ligand) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CD40LG include immunodeficiency, x-linked, with hyper-igm and cd40 ligand deficiency. Among its related pathways are A-beta Pathways: Uptake and Degradation and Immune System. GO annotations related to this gene include cytokine activity and CD40 receptor binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CD40LG Gene

  • Mediates B-cell proliferation in the absence of co-stimulus as well as IgE production in the presence of IL-4. Involved in immunoglobulin class switching.

  • Release of soluble CD40L from platelets is partially regulated by GP IIb/IIIa, actin polymerization, and an matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) inhibitor-sensitive pathway.

  • X-linked immunodeficiency with hyper-IgM 1 (HIGM1) [MIM:308230]: Immunoglobulin isotype switch defect characterized by elevated concentrations of serum IgM and decreased amounts of all other isotypes. Affected males present at an early age (usually within the first year of life) recurrent bacterial and opportunistic infections, including Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia and intractable diarrhea due to cryptosporidium infection. Despite substitution treatment with intravenous immunoglobulin, the overall prognosis is rather poor, with a death rate of about 10% before adolescence. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:7532185, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7678782, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7679206, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7679801, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7717401, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8094231, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8550833, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8889581, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9150729, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9746782}.
