Gene: CD79B (CD79b molecule) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CD79B
Name: CD79b molecule
Description: Exhibits identical protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in B cell differentiation and B cell receptor signaling pathway. Localizes to extracellular exosome. Implicated in agammaglobulinemia. Biomarker of acute lymphocytic leukemia; mantle cell lymphoma; and splenic marginal zone lymphoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
