C-C motif chemokine 17 (TARC)

Target (abbrv.) TARC
Target (full name) C-C motif chemokine 17
Somalogic ID (Sequence ID) SL003196 (3519-3_2)
Entrez Gene Symbol CCL17
UniProt ID Q92583
UniProt Comment
  • Chemotactic factor for T-lymphocytes but not monocytes or granulocytes. May play a role in T-cell development in thymus and in trafficking and activation of mature T-cells. Binds to CCR4.
Pathway Interaction Database
  • IL4-mediated signaling events
  • Chemokine receptors bind chemokines

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs983545) and 17 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.
