Technical Data
BTLA (B- and T-lymphocyte Associated Protein, B- and T-lymphocyte Attenuator, BTLA1, CD272, CD272 Antigen, FLJ16065, MGC129743)
Human CD272 (BTLA, B and T Lymphocyte Attenuator) is a member of the Immunoglobulin superfamily and has sequence homology to PD-1 and CTLA4. It is expressed on T and B lymphocytes and other hemopoetic lineages. Engagement of this molecule by its ligand, CD270 (HVEM, a TNF superfamily member) can down regulate activated T and B cell responses. CD272 levels on antigen specific CD8+ T cells have been reported to decrease in viral specific, but not melanoma specific activated lines (1). Polymorphism of the CD272 molecule has been linked to rheumatoid arthritis (3).

Suitable for use in ELISA and Flow Cytometry. Other applications not tested.
