Technical Data
BTLA (B- and T-lymphocyte Associated Protein, B- and T-lymphocyte Attenuator, BTLA1, CD272, CD272 Antigen, FLJ16065, MGC129743)
B- and T-lymphocyte attenuator (BTLA) is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein which is structurally and functionally related to cytotoxic T lymphocyte antigen-4 (CTLA-4), and programmed death-1 (PD-1). BTLA is a T-cell inhibitory receptor that regulates T cell activation through its interaction with herpes virus entry mediator (HVEM), a co-stimulator receptor of the TNFR family. BTLA may negatively regulate T-cell dependent autoimmune reaction, and polymorphisms in its gene have been associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
