Previous GeneCards Identifiers for FCRL3 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the immunoglobulin receptor superfamily and is one of several Fc receptor-like glycoproteins clustered on the long arm of chromosome 1. The encoded protein contains immunoreceptor-tyrosine activation motifs and immunoreceptor-tyrosine inhibitory motifs in its cytoplasmic domain and may play a role in regulation of the immune system. Mutations in this gene have been associated with rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune thyroid disease, and systemic lupus erythematosus. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FCRL3 Gene
Promotes TLR9-induced B-cell proliferation, activation and survival but inhibits antibody production and suppresses plasma cell differentiation. Enhances activation of NF-kappa-B and MAPK signaling pathways in TLR9 stimulated B-cells (PubMed:23857366). Has inhibitory potentional on B-cell receptor (BCR)-mediated signaling, possibly through association with SH2 domain-containing phosphatases. Inhibits cell tyrosine phosphorylation, calcium mobilization and activation-induced cell death induced through BCR signaling (PubMed:19843936). Regulatory T-cells expressing FCRL3 exhibit a memory phenotype, are relatively nonresponsive to antigenic stimulation in presence of IL2 and have reduced capacity to suppress the proliferation of effector T-cells (PubMed:20190142, PubMed:19494275).
