Summaries for CCR7 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CCR7 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the G protein-coupled receptor family. This receptor was identified as a gene induced by the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), and is thought to be a mediator of EBV effects on B lymphocytes. This receptor is expressed in various lymphoid tissues and activates B and T lymphocytes. It has been shown to control the migration of memory T cells to inflamed tissues, as well as stimulate dendritic cell maturation. The chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 19 (CCL19/ECL) has been reported to be a specific ligand of this receptor. Signals mediated by this receptor regulate T cell homeostasis in lymph nodes, and may also function in the activation and polarization of T cells, and in chronic inflammation pathogenesis. Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2014]

GeneCards Summary for CCR7 Gene

CCR7 (C-C Motif Chemokine Receptor 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CCR7 include Fixed Drug Eruption and Chronic Actinic Dermatitis. Among its related pathways are Akt Signaling and Hematopoietic Stem Cell Differentiation Pathways and Lineage-specific Markers. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 19 binding. An important paralog of this gene is CCR9.
