InnateDB Annotation
Summary
CLEC9A is restricted to dendritic cells, and specifically recognizes filamentous actin from necrotic cells. CLEC9A ligand engagement is necessary for the priming of cytotoxic T cells against necrotic cell antigens.
InnateDB Annotation from Orthologs
Summary
[Mus musculus] Clec9a is restricted to dendritic cells, and specifically recognizes filamentous actin from necrotic cells. Clec9a ligand engagement is necessary for the priming of cytotoxic T cells against necrotic cell antigens. (Demonstrated in human)
Entrez Gene
Summary CLEC9A is a group V C-type lectin-like receptor (CTLR) that functions as an activation receptor and is expressed on myeloid lineage cells (Huysamen et al., 2008 [PubMed 18408006]).[supplied by OMIM, Aug 2008]
