Technical Data
TIM-1 (T Cell Immunoglobin Domain and Mucin Domain Protein 1, TIM 1, TIM1, TIMD 1, TIMD1, TIMD-1, Hepatitis A Virus Cellular Receptor 1, HAVCR 1, HAVCR1, HAVCR-1, Kidney Injury Molecule 1, KIM1, KIM-1)
TIM-1 was first identified as the receptor used by hepatitis A for viral entry (it is also known as the hepatitis A virus cellular receptor- HAVCR). TIM-1 is a key cell surface protein that binds TIM-4, leading to T cell proliferation and T helper type 2 (Th2) cytokine production. TIM-1 has also been shown to bind and activate macrophages.

Two splice variants for human TIM-1 exist; TIM-1a is predominantly expressed in the liver, whilst TIM-1b is expressed in the kidney. Expression of TIM-1 in the kidney is thought to be upregulated in damaged tissue, and is thought to assist healing.

TIM-1 polymorphisms are associated with asthma.
