C-C motif chemokine 16 (HCC-4)

Target (abbrv.) HCC-4
Target (full name) C-C motif chemokine 16
Somalogic ID (Sequence ID) SL003300 (4913-78_1)
Entrez Gene Symbol CCL16
UniProt ID O15467
UniProt Comment
  • Shows chemotactic activity for lymphocytes and monocytes but not neutrophils. Also shows potent myelosuppressive activity, suppresses proliferation of myeloid progenitor cells. Recombinant SCYA16 shows chemotactic activity for monocytes and THP-1 monocytes, but not for resting lymphocytes and neutrophils. Induces a calcium flux in THP-1 cells that were desensitized by prior expression to RANTES.
  • Chemokine receptors bind chemokines
  • G alpha (i) signalling events
Pathway Studio
  • CCR1 → STAT signaling
  • CCR2/5 → STAT signaling
  • CCR5 → TP53 signaling
  • Nociception-related CCR1 expression targets
  • Summarized nociception-related expression targets

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs33995560) and 6 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.
