Previous Symbols for TIGIT Gene
This gene encodes a member of the PVR (poliovirus receptor) family of immunoglobin proteins. The product of this gene is expressed on several classes of T cells including follicular B helper T cells (TFH). The protein has been shown to bind PVR with high affinity; this binding is thought to assist interactions between TFH and dendritic cells to regulate T cell dependent B cell responses.[provided by RefSeq, Sep 2009]
GeneCards Summary for TIGIT Gene
TIGIT (T Cell Immunoreceptor With Ig And ITIM Domains) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Cell adhesion molecules (CAMs). GO annotations related to this gene include receptor binding.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TIGIT Gene
Binds with high affinity to the poliovirus receptor (PVR) which causes increased secretion of IL10 and decreased secretion of IL12B and suppresses T-cell activation by promoting the generation of mature immunoregulatory dendritic cells.
