leukocyte adhesion deficiency type 1

Disease ID:1182
Name:leukocyte adhesion deficiency type 1
Associated with:1 targets
0 immuno-relevant targets
0 immuno-relevant ligands
Description
LAD1 is an inherited immunodeficiency disease. Mutations in the β2 intergrin (ITGB2) gene lead to absent, reduced, or aberrant CD18 protein expression, resulting in subnormal levels of β2 intergrins on leukocyte membranes. This disrupts neutrophil migration (extravasion) to sites of infection resulting in recurrent infections.
