U-VUE Biomarker Datasheet - TIGIT
|Alternative Name:||T-cell immunoreceptor with Ig and ITIM domains|
|Main cell types:||Lymphocytes|
|Subcellular Location:||Plasma Membrane|
|Positive control:||Tonsil, Spleen|
TIGIT is a emerging immune checkpoint receptor expressed on T cells and NK cells. TIGIT is a negative regulator of cytotoxic lymphocytes and has been observed up-regulated in various malignancies. Due to its broad expression on lymphocytes, TIGIT may prevent tumour antigen release by NK cells, impair T cell priming by DCs or inhibit cancer cell killing by CD8+ T cells. Inhibition of TIGIT may restore anti-tumor T cell activity through competition with its costimulatory receptor, CD226.
