Summaries for PVRIG Gene

GeneCards Summary for PVRIG Gene

PVRIG (PVR Related Immunoglobulin Domain Containing) is a Protein Coding gene.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PVRIG Gene

  • Cell surface receptor for NECTIN2. May act as a coinhibitory receptor that suppresses T-cell receptor-mediated signals. Following interaction with NECTIN2, inhibits T-cell proliferation. Competes with CD226 for NECTIN2-binding.

mRNA Expression by UniProt/SwissProt for PVRIG Gene:

Tissue specificity: Expressed in some types of immune cells. Expressed at low levels on the surface of freshly isolated T-cells and natural killer (NK) cells, predominantly on CD8+ T-cells (mainly memory/effector, but not naive cells) and on both CD16+ and CD16- NK cells. T-cell expression levels are variable among individuals. Not detected in B-cells, naive or helper T-cells, monocytes, nor neutrophils (at protein level). Not detected in dendritic cells.
