Name :
Human PD-L1 protein (extracellular domain), Fc-fusion, recombinant

Description :
PD-L1 (programmed cell death 1 ligand 1) or CD274 is a 290-amino acid single pass type I transmembrane protein of the Ig (immunoglobulin) superfamily. It contains one Ig V-like and one Ig C-like domains in the extracellular region, and a 30-amino acid cytoplasmic tail. It was originally cloned as a homolog of B7 (termed B7-H1). It is 20% and 15% identical to B7-1 (CD80) and B7-2 (CD86), respectively. It was also cloned as a ligand (termed PDCD1L1 or PD-L1) that binds to PD-1 (CD279) and B7-1 (CD80), but not to other B7 family members, such as CTLA4 (CD152), CD28, or ICOS (CD278). PD-L1 or CD274 is involved in the T cell costimulatory signal, essential for T-cell proliferation and production of IL10 and IFNγ. Interaction with PD-1, which has a cytoplasmic immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motif (ITIM), inhibits T-cell proliferation and cytokine production. PD-L1 is up-regulated on T- and B-cells, dendritic cells, keratinocytes and monocytes after LPS and IFNγ activation or by surface Ig cross-linking. It is expressed in many types of freshly isolated human cancers but not in most normal tissues. Blockade of PD-L1 upregulates IL12 expression and enhances antitumor immunity in mice bearing ovarian tumors. Therefore, PD-L1 has been proposed as a target for cancer immunotherapy through pre-activated T cells that could be enhanced by blockade of PD-L1-induced inhibitory signaling.
