    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     plasma membrane
    basic FUNCTION
  • chemokine receptor 3 for the interferon gamma inducible proteins INP10, MIG mediating a rapid induction of effector in T lymphocytes
  • chemokine receptor that plays important roles in mediating chemotactic signals and modulating the activation of lymphocytes
  • playing an important role in effector T-cell and NK cell trafficking
  • regulates the migration of Th1 lymphocytes and responds to three ligands: CXCL9, CXCL10, and CXCL11
  • plays an important role in T cell trafficking and function
  • role for CXCR3 in the trafficking of Th1 and CD8 T cells to peripheral sites of Th1-type inflammation
  • plays a role in the migration of T cells in the microenvironment of the peripheral tissue and lymphoid compartment, facilitating the interaction of T cells with antigen presenting cells leading to the generation of effector and memory cells
  • promotes epidermal tumorigenesis likely through a T-cell-dependent induction of keratinocyte proliferation
    a component CXCL9-CXCR3 regulates Th1-associated immune pathways in liver
    small molecule
  • binding CXCL9, CXCL10, CXCL11
  • induced by uveitis antigens in lymphocytes and immature dendritic cells
  • with its ligands, CXCL11, CXCL10, and CXCL9, play a major role in T-helper 1 (Th1)-dependent inflammatory responses
  • receptor of CXCL11 (key ligand in the CXCR3 signaling system for wound repair, promoting re-epithelialization and modulating the maturation of the superficial dermis)
  • KLF2 negatively controls the ability of CD8 T cells to respond to the CXCR3 ligand CXCL10
