GeneID: 238


Common Name: FCGR2C Type: Gene
Chromosome: 1 (NC_000001.11) Locus: NG_011982.1 (FCGR2C)
HUGO Symbol: FCGR2C Full Name: Fc fragment of IgG receptor IIc (gene/pseudogene)
Exons: 7 Introns: 6

This gene encodes one of three members of a family of low-affinity immunoglobulin gamma Fc receptors (FcγRs) found on the surface of many immune response cells. The encoded protein is a transmembrane glycoprotein and may be involved in a variety of effector and regulatory functions such as phagocytosis of immune complexes and modulation of antibody production by B-cells. It also plays a crucial role in the formation of allo-antibodies. An allelic polymorphism in this gene results in both coding and non-coding variants. The non-classical open reading frame in the FCGR2C gene ( polymorphism) was associated with a decreased red blood cell allo-immunization risk in patients with sickle cell disease.
