Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
LIR8; Leukocyte immunoglobulin-like receptor subfamily B member 5; CD85 antigen-like family member C; Leukocyte immunoglobulin-like receptor 8; LIR-8; CD85c
LILRB5 is a member of the leukocyte immunoglobulin-like receptor (LIR) family, which is found in a gene cluster at chromosomal region 19q13.4. The encoded protein belongs to the subfamily B class of LIR receptors which contain two or four extracellular immunoglobulin domains, a transmembrane domain, and two to four cytoplasmic immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motifs (ITIMs). Several other LIR subfamily B receptors are expressed on immune cells where they bind to MHC class I molecules on antigen-presenting cells and inhibit stimulation of an immune response. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
