Technical Data
CD86 (Activation B7-2 Antigen, B70, B7-2, BU63, CD28LG2, CTLA-4 Counter-receptor B7.2, FUN-1, LAB72, MGC34413, T-lymphocyte Activation Antigen CD86 Precursor)
CD86, also known as B70/B7-2, is a 80kD type I integral membrane protein and a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. It is expressed at high levels on resting monocytes and dendritic cells and at very low levels on resting B and T lymphocytes. Activation of B cells, T cells and monocytes leads to upregulation of CD86 expression. Like CD80, CD86 is a ligand of CD28 and CD152. The interactions of CD86 (and CD80) with CD28 provides important costimulatory signals to T cells activated via the CD3/TCR complex. CD86 is expressed earlier than CD80 and appears to dominate in the primary immune response.
