Gene: CD44 (CD44 molecule (Indian blood group)) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CD44
Name: CD44 molecule (Indian blood group)
CRRD ID: 737036
Description: Exhibits hyaluronic acid binding activity. Contributes to cytokine receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of signal transduction by p53 class mediator; positive regulation of cell-cell adhesion; and positive regulation of phosphorylation. Localizes to several cellular components, including apical plasma membrane; lamellipodium membrane; and macrophage migration inhibitory factor receptor complex. Implicated in breast carcinoma (multiple); carcinoma (multiple); and prostate cancer. Biomarker of Krukenberg carcinoma; invasive ductal carcinoma; leiomyomatosis; lung adenocarcinoma; and urinary system cancer (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
