Plexin-C1 (PLXC1)

Target (abbrv.) PLXC1
Target (full name) Plexin-C1
Somalogic ID (Sequence ID) SL006406 (4564-2_2)
Entrez Gene Symbol PLXNC1
UniProt ID O60486
UniProt Comment
  • Receptor for SEMA7A, for smallpox semaphorin A39R, vaccinia virus semaphorin A39R and for herpesvirus Sema protein. Binding of semaphorins triggers cellular responses leading to the rearrangement of the cytoskeleton and to secretion of IL6 and IL8 (By similarity).
  • Other semaphorin interactions

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs2361355) and 10 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.
