ICOS/ AILIM / CD278 Protein Description
Inducible costimulator (ICOS), also called AILIM (activiation-inducible lymphocyte immunomediatory molecule) is a cell-surface receptor, and belongs to the CD28 family of immune costimulatory receptors consisting of CD28, CTLA-4 and PD-1. Optimal T cell activation and expansion are regulated by signals delivered not only through the T cell receptor (TCR), but also a number of costimulatory molecules. ICOS is expressed on antigen-primed T cells, and B7RP-1(or B7-H2) on B cells and macrophages has been identified as the ICOS ligand. The interaction of B7-H2/ICOS plays a critical role in Th cell differentiation, T?B cell interactions which is essential for germinal center formation, and humoral immune responses, and as well as the production of cytokine IL-4. In addition, ICOS also regulates TH2-mediated mucosal inflammatory responses partially through the signal for up-regulation of the chemokine receptors, and accordingly, aberrant expression of ICOS is implicated in allergic inflammatory responses and other immunity disorders.
