|Other Names||Leukocyte immunoglobulin-like receptor subfamily B member 4, CD85 antigen-like family member K, Immunoglobulin-like transcript 3, ILT-3, Leukocyte immunoglobulin-like receptor 5, LIR-5, Monocyte inhibitory receptor HM18, CD85k, LILRB4, ILT3, LIR5|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Receptor for class I MHC antigens. Recognizes a broad spectrum of HLA-A, HLA-B, HLA-C and HLA-G alleles. Involved in the down-regulation of the immune response and the development of tolerance, e.g. towards transplants. Interferes with TNFRSF5- signaling and NF-kappa-B up-regulation. Inhibits receptor-mediated phosphorylation of cellular proteins and mobilization of intracellular calcium ions.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein Note=Ligand binding leads to internalization and translocation to an antigen-processing compartment|
|Tissue Location||Detected in monocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells, lung, natural killer cells and B-cells|

This gene is a member of the leukocyte immunoglobulin-likereceptor (LIR) family, which is found in a gene cluster atchromosomal region 19q13.4. The encoded protein belongs to thesubfamily B class of LIR receptors which contain two or fourextracellular immunoglobulin domains, a transmembrane domain, andtwo to four cytoplasmic immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitorymotifs (ITIMs). The receptor is expressed on immune cells where itbinds to MHC class I molecules on antigen-presenting cells andtransduces a negative signal that inhibits stimulation of an immuneresponse. The receptor can also function in antigen capture andpresentation. It is thought to control inflammatory responses andcytotoxicity to help focus the immune response and limitautoreactivity. Multiple transcript variants encoding differentisoforms have been found for this gene.
