HIV-1 resistance (CCR5 gene polymorphism)
Analysis ID 162
Analysis location “GENESIS” Centre for Medical Genetics
Diagnosed illness HIV-1 resistance (CCR5 gene polymorphism)
Clinical information This gene encodes a member of chemokine receptor family. The protein is expressed by T cells and macrophages and is known to be an important co-receptor for macrophage-tropic virus, including HIV, to enter host cells. Defective alleles of this gene have been associated with the resistance to HIV infection.
