Gene Description CD74, CD74 molecule, encodes for a type II integral membrane glycoprotein that acts as an MHC class II chaperone and plays a role in the signal transduction of pathways related to cell survival, proliferation (PMID: 16484589, PMID: 27058619), and the immune system (PMID: 30191677).
