CD238 antigens

CD238 antigens general information

CD238 Gene ID 3792
CD238 Official Full Name Kell blood group, metallo-endopeptidase
CD238 Alias Kell, KEL, Blood Group Kell
CD238 Cellular Expression Erythrocyte; Stem cell
CD238 Ligand/Receptor/Association laminin α5
CD238 Function Zinc endopeptidase cleaving endothelin 3. Contains the Kell blood group antigens
CD238 Summary This gene encodes a type II transmembrane glycoprotein that is the highly polymorphic Kell blood group antigen. The Kell glycoprotein links via a single disulfide bond to the XK membrane protein that carries the Kx antigen. The encoded protein contains sequence and structural similarity to members of the neprilysin (M13) family of zinc endopeptidases. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
