Gene: Cd40lg (CD40 ligand) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Cd40lg
Name: CD40 ligand
RGD ID: 708418
Description: Exhibits CD40 receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of B cell proliferation; positive regulation of MHC class II biosynthetic process; and positive regulation of cytokine production. Localizes to several cellular components, including cell body; cell surface; and extracellular space. Used to study Ehrlich tumor carcinoma; artery disease (multiple); autoimmune disease (multiple); thrombosis; and vitamin B12 deficiency. Biomarker of atherosclerosis; coronary artery disease; perinatal necrotizing enterocolitis; periodontal disease; and pulmonary hypertension. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including Kawasaki disease; autoimmune disease (multiple); combined T cell and B cell immunodeficiency (multiple); hematologic cancer (multiple); and lupus nephritis. Orthologous to human CD40LG (CD40 ligand); PARTICIPATES IN interleukin-4 signaling pathway; obesity pathway; allograft rejection pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,1,1-Trichloro-2-(o-chlorophenyl)-2-(p-chlorophenyl)ethane; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 4-aminopyridine.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: CD40 ligand CD154; CD40-L; Cd40l; LOC84349; Tnfsf5; tumor necrosis factor (ligand) superfamily, member 5; tumor necrosis factor ligand superfamily member 5
