Background: CXCR5 (CXC-chemokine receptor 5, or Burkitt lymphoma receptor 1) is a receptor for CXCL13 and expresses in mature B-cells, a subpopulation of T-cells and Burkitt lymphoma cells. CXCR5 exerts possibly a regulatory function in Burkitt lymphoma lymphomagenesis and/or B-cell differentiation. It is a potential candidate for cell-cell interaction and activation of mature B-lymphocytes in lymphatic tissues.
Application: Functional assays
