Gene: CCL21 (C-C motif chemokine ligand 21) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CCL21
Name: C-C motif chemokine ligand 21
RGD ID: 1323745
Description: Exhibits chemokine activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of cellular component biogenesis; positive regulation of intracellular signal transduction; and regulation of leukocyte migration. Predicted to localize to extracellular space. Biomarker of pulmonary fibrosis.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
