Summaries for CCR4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CCR4 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the G-protein-coupled receptor family . It is a receptor for the CC chemokine - MIP-1, RANTES, TARC and MCP-1. Chemokines are a group of small polypeptide, structurally related molecules that regulate cell trafficking of various types of leukocytes. The chemokines also play fundamental roles in the development, homeostasis, and function of the immune system, and they have effects on cells of the central nervous system as well as on endothelial cells involved in angiogenesis or angiostasis.

GeneCards Summary for CCR4 Gene

CCR4 (C-C Motif Chemokine Receptor 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CCR4 include Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma and Cutaneous T Cell Lymphoma. Among its related pathways are Akt Signaling and Peptide ligand-binding receptors. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and C-C chemokine receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is CCR5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CCR4 Gene

  • High affinity receptor for the C-C type chemokines CCL17/TARC, CCL22/MDC and CKLF isoform 1/CKLF1. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G(i) proteins which activate a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system. Can function as a chemoattractant homing receptor on circulating memory lymphocytes and as a coreceptor for some primary HIV-2 isolates. In the CNS, could mediate hippocampal-neuron survival.

Tocris Summary for CCR4 Gene

  • Chemokine CC receptors (CCRs) predominantly recognize CC chemokines. CC chemokines are distinguished by having four conserved cysteines, with the first two cysteines being adjacent to each other. There are 10 chemokine CC receptors.
