Immunopharmacology Comments
RGS13 is involved in a range of immune system and inflammatory processes [13,15,18]. For example, RGS13 inhibits CXCL12- and CXCL13-induced MAPK activation, and chemotaxis [17]. In contrast RGS13 knockdown enhances CXCL12 and CXCL13 responsiveness [6].

Clinically-Relevant Mutations and Pathophysiology Click here for help
Disease:  Mantle cell lymphoma
Description: MCL is an aggressive form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL; median survival of 3-4 years) that arises from B-cells originating within the mantle zone of lymphatic follicles. In the US, around six percent of all new NHL cases are MCL.
Disease Ontology: DOID:0050746
Orphanet: ORPHA52416
References:  8
Disease:  Non-allergic (intrinsic) asthma
Description: Although characteristic symptoms are the same as for allergic asthma, non-allergic asthma is triggered by factors not related to allergies (e.g. anxiety, stress, exercise, cold air, dry air, hyperventilation, smoke, viruses or other irritants) and the immune system is not involved in the reaction.
