Sialic acid-binding Ig-like lectin 6 (Siglec-6)

Target (abbrv.) Siglec-6
Target (full name) Sialic acid-binding Ig-like lectin 6
Somalogic ID (Sequence ID) SL005217 (2741-22_2)
Entrez Gene Symbol SIGLEC6
UniProt ID O43699
UniProt Comment
  • Putative adhesion molecule that mediates sialic-acid dependent binding to cells. Binds to 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.

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs2005199) and 27 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.
