    basic FUNCTION
  • interaction between CD2 and CD58 on opposing cells optimizes immune recognition
  • enhancing signal-dependent adhesion of resting NK cells initiated by expression of ICAM1
  • adhesion molecule involved in intercellular adhesion and in signal transduction (Ariel 2004)
  • costimulates and enhances T cell receptor signaling by engaging CD2 (De Jager 2009)
  • complex CD2/CD58 plays an important role in enhancing the adhesion of T lymphocytes to target cells, and promoting hyperplasia and activation of T lymphocytes (Li 2008)
  • T cell activation causes the CD58-bound CD2 to be recognized and immobilized at sites of cell-cell contact, thereby strengthening T cell-APC adhesion (Zhu 2006)
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell communication
