Gene: CLEC7A (C-type lectin domain containing 7A) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CLEC7A
Name: C-type lectin domain containing 7A
Description: Exhibits (1->3)-beta-D-glucan binding activity and pattern recognition receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of cytokine production; positive regulation of reactive oxygen species metabolic process; and response to fungus. Localizes to cell surface and cytoplasm. Implicated in aspergillosis and chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
