Type 1 glycoprotein
|CD85c is expressed on T cell subsets, monocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells and B lymphocytes. Expression is predominantly in NK cells.|
|MOLECULAR FAMILY NAME: Belongs to the immunoglobulin supergene family.|
CD85c is a single-pass type 1 glycoprotein. It contains an extracellular domain which contains 4 Ig-like C2-type domains, a 590 aa transmembrane and a long cytoplasmic domain containing 2 ITIM motifs. The motifs are involved in moduation of cellular responses. The ILT/LIR family is a member of the Ig gene superfamily.
Alternative splicing yields 2 different isoforms.
The phosphorylation ITIM motif can bind the Sh2 domain of several SH2-containing phosphatases.
|LIGANDS AND MOLECULES ASSOCIATED WITH CD85c: No information|
|CD85c is involved in the activation of NK-mediated cytotoxicity and binds the FcRγ chain. CD85c may act as a receptor for MHC class I antigens.|
BIOCHEMICAL ACTIVITY: No information.
DISEASE RELEVANCE AND FUNCTION OF CD85c IN INTACT ANIMAL: No information.
|Previously, the ILT family was clustered together as CD85. Recently subclassifications have been given to individual members listed as CD85a - CD85m. Ig-like transcripts (ITLs) and leukocyte Ig-like transcripts (LIRs) are structurally and functionally related transmembrane glycoproteins. The receptors are divided into 2 groups of inhibitory and activating receptors according to the nature of their transmembrane and cytoplasmic regions. Receptors with a long cytoplasmic tail, CD85a (ILT5/LIR3), CD85c (LIR8), CD85d (ILT4/LIR2), CD85j (ILT2/LIR1) and CD85k (ILT3/LIR5), contain one or more intracytoplasmic ITIMs which recruit and activate protein tyrosine phosphates SHP-1 and/or SHP-2. Receptors with a short tail, CD85b (ILT8), CD85f (ILT11), CD85g (ILT7), CD85h (ILT1/LIR7) and CD85i (LIR6a) lack ITIMs and contain a positively charged aa residue, arginine or lysine, in their transmembrane domain which is necessary for association with ITIM-containing polypeptides like FcRg chain. CD85l (ILT9) and CD85m (ILT10) bind the FcRg chain. Phosphorylated ITAMs recruit the protein tyrosine kinases Syk and ZAP70. One exception to these transmembrane receptors is CD85e (ILT6/LIR4) which has no transmembrane or cytoplasmic domains and is probably soluble. |
