Catherine Snow (Genomics England)

Immunoglobulin (Ig) M plays an important role in immune regulation. FCMR-encoded FcμR is a receptor of IgM. Chang et al (PMID:32073687) explored the roles of mRNA expressions of IgM receptors, particularly FCMR, in Kawasaki disease patients.
PMID:29461978 demonstrate that in mice the specific deletion of fcmr on B cells results in impaired antiviral T cell responses.
