Chromosome 6 open reading frame 25
G6b, immunoglobulin-receptor, G6b protein
This gene is a member of the immunoglobulin (Ig) superfamily and is located in the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class III region. The protein encoded by this gene is a glycosylated, plasma membrane-bound cell surface receptor, but soluble isoforms encoded by some transcript variants have been found in the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi before being secreted. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from

G6b-B expression is highly restricted to peripheral CD4+ T cells and up-regulated by the IL-4-induced STAT6 pathway, suggesting that G6b-B is involved in regulation of the immune response by CD4+ T cell-mediated and IL-4 induced regulatory mechanisms.

Polymeric-immunoglobulin-receptor-deficient (pIgR(-/-)) mice that were unable to secrete antibodies across mucosal surfaces were cohoused with normal and otherwise genetically identical wild-type (C57BL/6) mice for 4 weeks.

The sequence analysis has revealed the localization of seven genes, whose precise position and order is cen-G7-G6-G6A-G6B-G6C-G6D-G6E-tel, five of which are fully encoded in the sequence, allowing their genomic structures to be defined.

Protection against Fas-dependent apoptosis afforded by immunoglobulin-receptor engagement may constitute a fail-safe mechanism that eliminates bystander B cells activated by CD40L-expressing T cells, but ensures survival of antigen-specific B cells.
