Summaries for CXCL10 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CXCL10 Gene

  • This antimicrobial gene encodes a chemokine of the CXC subfamily and ligand for the receptor CXCR3. Binding of this protein to CXCR3 results in pleiotropic effects, including stimulation of monocytes, natural killer and T-cell migration, and modulation of adhesion molecule expression. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2014]

GeneCards Summary for CXCL10 Gene

Function for CXCL10 Gene

Molecular function for CXCL10 Gene

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Function:
Chemotactic for monocytes and T-lymphocytes. Binds to CXCR3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Induction:
By IFNG/IFN-gamma. A diverse population of cell types rapidly increases transcription of mRNA encoding this protein. This suggests that gamma-induced protein may be a key mediator of the IFNG/IFN-gamma response.
