  • General notes


    In chicken, the CD8 molecule is present in two forms: (i) a homodimer of two alpha chains, and (ii) a heterodimer of an alpha chain and a beta chain. Chicken CD8 is expressed on approximately 80% of thymocytes, 45% of blood mononuclear cells and 50% of spleen cells, but <1% of cells in the bursa and bone marrow. While the vast majority of CD8+ cells in the thymus, spleen, and blood of adult chickens express both CD8 alpha and CD8 beta chains, a relatively large proportion of the CD8+ TCR gamma delta cells in the spleens of embryos and young chicks express only the alpha chain of CD8. Among intestinal epithelial lymphocytes, the major CD8+ T cell populations present in mice are conserved, but there is a population of TCR gamma delta CD8 alpha beta cells in the chicken that is not found in rodents.

Target

  • Function
    Identifies cytotoxic/suppressor T-cells that interact with MHC class I bearing targets. CD8 is thought to play a role in the process of T-cell mediated killing. CD8 alpha chains binds to class I MHC molecules alpha-3 domains.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in CD8A are a cause of familial CD8 deficiency (CD8 deficiency) [MIM:608957]. Familial CD8 deficiency is a novel autosomal recessive immunologic defect characterized by absence of CD8+ cells, leading to recurrent bacterial infections.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 Ig-like V-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    All of the five most carboxyl-terminal cysteines form inter-chain disulfide bonds in dimers and higher multimers, while the four N-terminal cysteines do not.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted and Cell membrane.
