|Product Overview:||Recombinant Cynomolgus Monkey TIGIT(Met22-Pro142) fused with Fc region of Human IgG1 at C-terminal was expressed in HEK293.|
|Description:||TIGIT (T cell Immunoreceptor with Ig and ITIM domains), also called VSTM3 (V-set and transmembrane domain-containing 3), VSIG9 (V-set and Ig domain-containing 9) and WUCAM (Washington University cell adhesion molecule) is a 30-34 kDa type I transmembrane protein that is a member of the CD28 family within the Ig superfamily of proteins. Human TIGIT cDNA encodes 244 amino acids (aa) including a 21 aa signal sequence, a 120 aa extracellular region with a V-type Ig-like domain and two potential N-glycosylation site, a 21 aa transmembrane sequence, and an 82 aa cytoplasmic domain with an ITIM motif. A 170 aa variant diverges after aa 166. Within the ECD, human TIGIT shares only 68-75% aa sequence identity with mouse, porcine, canine, equine and bovine TIGIT. Cyno TIGIT shares 88.4% homology with human TIGIT. TIGIT is expressed on NK cells and subsets of activated, memory and regulatory T cells, and particularly on follicular helper T cells within secondary lymphoid organs. It binds to CD155/PVR/Necl-5 and Nectin-2/CD112/PVRL2 that appear on dendritic cells (DC) and endothelium. Binding of TIGIT by DC induces IL-10 release and inhibits IL-12 production. Ligation of TIGIT on T cells down‑regulates TCR-mediated activation and subsequent proliferation, while NK cell TIGIT ligation blocks NK cell cytotoxicity. Through CD155 and Nectin-2, which also interact with DNAM-1/CD226 and CD96/Tactile, TIGIT is part of an interacting network of Ig superfamily members that may augment or oppose each other. In particular, TIGIT binding to CD155 can antagonize the effects of DNAM-1. Soluble TIGIT is able to compete with DNAM-1 for CD155 binding and attenuates T cell responses, while mice lacking TIGIT show increased T cell responses and susceptibility to autoimmune challenges.|
