C-C motif chemokine 4-like (LAG-1)

Target (abbrv.) LAG-1
Target (full name) C-C motif chemokine 4-like
Somalogic ID (Sequence ID) SL004356 (2781-63_2)
Entrez Gene Symbol CCL4L1
UniProt ID Q8NHW4
UniProt Comment
  • Chemokine that induces chemotaxis of cells expressing CCR5 or CCR1. Inhibits HIV replication in peripheral blood monocytes that express CCR5.

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs6808835) and 89 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.
