  • FunctionReceptor involved in the costimulatory signal essential for T-lymphocyte proliferation and interleukin-2 production, by binding CD28 or CTLA-4. May play a critical role in the early events of T-cell activation and costimulation of naive T-cells, such as deciding between immunity and anergy that is made by T-cells within 24 hours after activation. Isoform 2 interferes with the formation of CD86 clusters, and thus acts as a negative regulator of T-cell activation.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed by activated B-lymphocytes and monocytes.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain.
    Contains 1 Ig-like V-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain.
  • Post-translational
    Polyubiquitinated; which is promoted by MARCH8 and results in endocytosis and lysosomal degradation.
  • Cellular localizationMembrane.
