CD73 antigens

CD73 antigens general information

CD73 Gene ID 4907 CD73 Official Full Name 5'-nucleotidase ecto CD73 Alias 5'-nucleotidase, NT5E CD73 Cellular Expression T; B; NK; Dendritic; Endothelial; Epithelial; Stem cell CD73 Ligand/Receptor/Association AMP CD73 Function Nucleotidase CD73 Summary This gene encodes a membrane glycoprotein of T lymphocytes that interacts with major histocompatibility complex class II antigenes and is also a receptor for the human immunodeficiency virus. This gene is expressed not only in T lymphocytes, but also in B cells, macrophages, and granulocytes. It is also expressed in specific regions of the brain. The protein functions to initiate or augment the early phase of T-cell activation, and may function as an important mediator of indirect neuronal damage in infectious and immune-mediated diseases of the central nervous system. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified in this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2010]
