FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a protein belonging to the B7 costimulatory protein family. Proteins in this family are present on the surface of antigen-presenting cells and interact with ligand bound to receptors on the surface of T cells. Studies have shown that high levels of the encoded protein has been correlated with tumor progression. A pseudogene of this gene is located on chromosome 20. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2011]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for this mutation display stronger Th1 responses upon parasitic infection by L. major including reduced footpad swelling and lower parasite burden compared to controls. Responses to other Th1-driven immune responses are normal. [provided by MGI curators]
