View in BioMuta


ACKR3 (CXCR7, CMKOR1) is a member of the G-protein coupled receptor family. It is a receptor for chemokines CXCL12/SDF1 and CXCL11. ACKR3 does not elicit classical chemokine receptor signaling; chemokine binding does not activate G-protein-mediated signal transduction but instead induces beta-arrestin recruitment, leading to ligand internalization and activation of MAPK signaling pathway. ACKR3 is also a coreceptor for human immunodeficiency viruses (HIV).

Performance Comment

ACKR3 (CXCR7, CMKOR1) was one of 50 tumor vasculature-associated genes with transmembrane or secreted protein products identified through expression profiling of ovarian cancer vascular cells. These 50 tumor vascular markers (TVMs) also had low or no expression in normal tissues. ACKR3 (CXCR7, CMKOR1) was not in the group of 13 selected for further validation.
