Among its related pathways are T Cell Co-Signaling Pathway: Ligand-Receptor Interactions and ICos-ICosL Pathway in T-Helper Cell. GO annotations related to this gene include receptor binding. An important paralog of this gene is LOC102723996.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ICOSLG Gene
Ligand for the T-cell-specific cell surface receptor ICOS. Acts as a costimulatory signal for T-cell proliferation and cytokine secretion; induces also B-cell proliferation and differentiation into plasma cells. Could play an important role in mediating local tissue responses to inflammatory conditions, as well as in modulating the secondary immune response by co-stimulating memory T-cell function (By similarity).
