Protein Information
Name CD8B
Synonyms CD8B1
Function Identifies cytotoxic/suppressor T-cells that interact with MHC class I bearing targets. CD8 is thought to play a role in the process of T-cell mediated killing.
Cellular Location Isoform 1: Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein Isoform 3: Secreted. Isoform 5: Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein Isoform 7: Secreted.
Tissue Location Isoform 1, isoform 3, isoform 5, isoform 6, isoform 7 and isoform 8 are expressed in both thymus and peripheral CD8+ T-cells. Expression of isoform 1 is higher in thymus CD8+ T-cells than in peripheral CD8+ T-cells. Expression of isoform 6 is higher in peripheral CD8+ T-cells than in thymus CD8+ T-cells.

The T cell receptor (TCR) is a heterodimer composed of either Ī � and Ī � or Ī � and Ī � chains. CD3 chains and the CD4 or CD8 co-receptors are also required for efficient signal transduction through the TCR. The TCR is expressed on T helper and T cytotoxic cells that can be distinguished by their expression of CD4 and CD8. T helper cells express CD4 proteins and T cytotoxic cells display CD8. CD8 (also designated Leu 2 or T8), a cell surface glycoprotein, is a two chain complex (Ī �-Ī � or Ī �-Ī �) receptor that binds class I MHC molecules presented by the antigen-presenting cell (APC). A primary function of CD8 is to facilitate antigen recognition by the TCR and to strengthen the avidity of the TCR-antigen interactions. An additional role for CD8-expressing T cells may be to maintain low levels of HIV expression.
