Name :
Human TIGIT/VSIG9/VSTM3/WUCAM Protein, ECD (Extracellular Domain), Fc-fusion, Recombinant

Description :
TIGIT (T cell immunoreceptor with immunoglobulin and ITIM domains), also known as VSTM3 (V-set and transmembrane domain-containing protein 3) and VSIG9 (V-set and immunoglobulin domain-containing protein 9), is a single pass type I transmembrane protein belonging to the CD28 family within the Ig superfamily (IgSF). TIGIT contains a 115 aa extracellular region with a V-type Ig­like (IgV) domain, a transmembrane (TM) domain and a 79 aa cytoplasmic region with an immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motif (ITIM). TIGIT is expressed on NK cells and regulatory, memory, activated T cells including follicular helper T cells within secondary lymphoid organs. TIGIT binds to CD155/PVR/Necl5 with high affinity and CD112/PVRL2/Nectin2 with low affinity. Through CD155 and CD112, TIGIT also interacts with other IgSF members such as CD226/DNAM1 and CD96/Tactile. TIGIT suppresses T cell activation by promoting the generation of mature immunoregulatory dendritic cells (DCs). The binding of PVR to TIGIT on human DCs induces the production of IL-10 and inhibits the production of IL-12. Ligation of TIGIT on T cells down-regulates TCR­mediated activation and T proliferation, while TIGIT ligation on NK cells blocks NK cell cytotoxicity directly through its ITIM. Therefore TIGIT inhibits the NK-mediated killing of tumor cells and protects normal cells from NK-mediated cytotoxicity. Mice deficient in TIGIT show increased T cell responses and susceptibility to autoimmune challenges. Soluble TIGIT is able to compete with CD226 for CD155 binding and attenuate T cell responses.

Construct Details :
The recombinant human TIGIT-Fc fusion is expressed as a 348 amino acid protein consisting of Met22 – Pro141 region of TIGIT (Uniprot Accession #Q495A1) and a C-terminal Fc from human IgG1, which exists as a dimer under non-reducing conditions.
