Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified E
The MHC-encoded butyrophilin, BTN2A1, is a cell surface glycoprotein related to the extended family of B7 costimulatory molecules. BTN2A1 mRNA is expressed in most human tissues, but protein expression is significantly lower in leukocytes. The protein is an integral plasma membrane B box protein involved in lipid, fatty-acid and sterol metabolism. Recent studies reveal that the protein can negatively regulate T cell proliferation and cytokine production. Additionally, genetic studies have described polymorphisms in the protein which are reported to be associated with disorders such as sarcoidosis, myositis andulcerative colitis. Human BTN2A1 gene is located in 6p22.1.
