CCR7

A gene on chromosome 17q12-q21.2 that encodes a member of the beta chemokine receptor family, which is similar to G protein-coupled receptors. CCR7 is expressed in various lymphoid tissues and activates B and T lymphocytes. It controls migration of memory T cells to inflamed tissues and stimulates dendritic cell maturation.
