Intercellular adhesion molecule 5 (sICAM-5)

Target (abbrv.) sICAM-5
Target (full name) Intercellular adhesion molecule 5
Somalogic ID (Sequence ID) SL005169 (5124-69_3)
Entrez Gene Symbol ICAM5
UniProt ID Q9UMF0
UniProt Comment
  • ICAM proteins are ligands for the leukocyte adhesion protein LFA-1 (integrin alpha-L/beta-2).

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs1051738) and 21 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.
