Involvement in disease
Genetic variation in PDCD1 is associated with susceptibility to systemic lupus erythematosus type 2 (SLEB2) [MIM:605218]. Systemic lupus erythematosus is a chronic, inflammatory and often febrile multisystemic disorder of connective tissue. It affects principally the skin, joints, kidneys and serosal membranes. It is thought to represent a failure of the regulatory mechanisms of the autoimmune system.
Staining of 3-day unstimulated (left) and 3-day ConA activated (right) BALB/c splenocytes with 0.25 µg of FITC Rat IgG2b isotype control (open histogram), or 0.25 µg of ab93579
