|Target/Specificity||Mouse anti Human CD279 antibody, clone MIH4 detects CD279, a co-stimulatory molecule also known as programmed cell death-1 (PD-1). CD279 is 50-55kD membrane protein which is a member of the CD28 family, and functions mainly as a negative regulator of T-cell activation. CD279 has two specific ligands; CD274 (PD-L1) and CD273 (PD-L2), and their interaction is key in the balance between stimulatory and inhibitory signals needed for effective immune responses to microbes and self-tolerance. CD279 is inducibly expressed by T-cells, B-cells, NK-T-cells and monocytes upon activation.Loss of CD279 function has been associated with a number of autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, type I diabetes and ankylosing spondylitis. Recent studies suggest that CD279 could be targeted therapeutically in the treatment of HIV infection to reduce T-cell exhaustion.|
