Entrez Gene Summary for CD27 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the TNF-receptor superfamily. This receptor is required for generation and long-term maintenance of T cell immunity. It binds to ligand CD70, and plays a key role in regulating B-cell activation and immunoglobulin synthesis. This receptor transduces signals that lead to the activation of NF-kappaB and MAPK8/JNK. Adaptor proteins TRAF2 and TRAF5 have been shown to mediate the signaling process of this receptor. CD27-binding protein (SIVA), a proapoptotic protein, can bind to this receptor and is thought to play an important role in the apoptosis induced by this receptor. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CD27 Gene

CD27 (CD27 Molecule) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CD27 include Lymphoproliferative Syndrome 2 and Combined Immunodeficiency Due To Cd27 Deficiency. Among its related pathways are Innate Immune System and PAK Pathway. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include transmembrane signaling receptor activity and cysteine-type endopeptidase inhibitor activity involved in apoptotic process. An important paralog of this gene is LTBR.
