Target (abbrv.) Siglec-9
Target (full name) Sialic acid-binding Ig-like lectin 9
Somalogic ID (Sequence ID) SL005219 (3007-7_2)
Entrez Gene Symbol SIGLEC9
UniProt ID Q9Y336
UniProt Comment
  • Putative adhesion molecule that mediates sialic-acid dependent binding to cells. Preferentially binds to alpha-2,3- or alpha-2,6-linked sialic acid. The sialic acid recognition site may be masked by cis interactions with sialic acids on the same cell surface.

  • Natural Killer Cell Inhibitory Receptor Signaling

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs1568003) and 2 proxy variant(s) that is/are in linkage disequilibrium r2 ≥ 0.8. Linkage disequilibrium is based on data from the 1000 Genomes Project, phase 3 version 5, European population and was retrieved using SNiPA's Block Annotation feature.
