Summaries for CCL26 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CCL26 Gene

  • This gene is one of two Cys-Cys (CC) cytokine genes clustered on the q arm of chromosome 7. Cytokines are a family of secreted proteins involved in immunoregulatory and inflammatory processes. The CC cytokines are proteins characterized by two adjacent cysteines. The cytokine encoded by this gene displays chemotactic activity for normal peripheral blood eosinophils and basophils. The product of this gene is one of three related chemokines that specifically activate chemokine receptor CCR3. This chemokine may contribute to the eosinophil accumulation in atopic diseases. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CCL26 Gene

CCL26 (C-C Motif Chemokine Ligand 26) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CCL26 include Esophagitis and Heart Tumor. Among its related pathways are Akt Signaling and ERK Signaling. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include chemokine activity. An important paralog of this gene is CCL5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CCL26 Gene

  • Chemoattractant for eosinophils and basophils (PubMed:10415065, PubMed:10488147). Acts as a ligand for C-C chemokine receptor CCR3 which triggers Ca(2+) mobilization in eosinophils (PubMed:10415065, PubMed:10488147, PubMed:11425309).
