|TREM1 is highly expressed in adult liver, lung and spleen than in corresponding fetal tissue. It is expressed in the lymph node, placenta, spinal cord and heart tissues. It is more elevalted in peripheral blood leukocytes than in bone marrow and in normal cells than malignant cells. Expression is low in the early development of the hematopoietic system and in the promonocytic stage and at high levels in mature monocytes. Expression is also strong in acute inflammatory lesions caused by bacteria and fungi. Isoform 2 was detected in the lung, liver and mature monocytes.|
MOLECULAR FAMILY NAME: Belongs to the immunoglobulin gene family.
|LIGANDS AND MOLECULES ASSOCIATED WITH TREM1: No information.|
|TREM1 triggers secretion of IL-8, monocyte chemotactic protein-1 and TNF-α and induces neutrophil degranulation. Intracellularly, TREM1 induces Ca2+ mobilization and tyrosine phosphorylation of extracellular signal-related kinase 1 (ERK1), ERK2 and phospholipase C-γ. To mediate activation, TREM1 associates with the transmembrane adapter molecule DAP12. Thus, TREM1 mediates activation of neutrophil and monocytes and may have a predominant role in inflammatory responses. TREM1 also triggers release of pro- inflammatory chemokines and cytokines as well as increased surface expression cell activation markers. |
