chemokine (C-C motif) receptor 9
Background
C-C chemokine receptor type 9, also called GPR-9-6 or CDw199, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the CCR9 gene. The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the beta chemoking receptor family. By radiation hybrid analysis and organization of BAC contigs by FISH on combed genomic DNA, the CCR9 gene within the CCR cluster was localized at 3p21.3. It is the receptor for chemokine SCYA25/TECK. This gene subsequently transduces a signal by increasing the intracellular calcium ions level. It is an alternative coreceptor with CD4 for HIV-1 infection. This gene may play a role in the thymocytes recruitment and development that may permit functional specialization of immune responses in different segment of the gastrointestinal tract
