Fc fragment of IgG receptor IIb

ENTREZID: 2213 | Type: NA | Map: 1q23.3

OMIM: 300335

Summary Entrez
The protein encoded by this gene is a low affinity receptor for the Fc region of immunoglobulin gamma complexes. The encoded protein is involved in the phagocytosis of immune complexes and in the regulation of antibody production by B-cells. Variations in this gene may increase susceptibilty to systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
