Target (abbrv.) PARC

Entrez Gene Symbol CCL18
UniProt ID P55774
UniProt Comment
  • Chemotactic factor that attracts lymphocytes but not monocytes or granulocytes. May be involved in B-cell migration into B-cell follicles in lymph nodes. Attracts naive T-lymphocytes toward dendritic cells and activated macrophages in lymph nodes, has chemotactic activity for naive T-cells, CD4+ and CD8+ T-cells and thus may play a role in both humoral and cell-mediated immunity responses.
Biomarker applications (based on IPA annotation)
  • efficacy
  • safety

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs35871176) and 3 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.
