  • type II integral to membrane
  • basic FUNCTION
  • acting as a lectin receptor
  • pathogen-associated molecular pattern receptor in human myeloid cells
  • likely participates in antigen uptake and internalization, and might be a suitable target molecule in vaccination strategies
  • acts as a pathogen attachment factor for Ebolavirus and the SARS coronavirus, and its expression can be induced by interleukin-4 on monocytes and macrophages
  • specifically recognized activated T cells and negatively regulated their immune responses
  • negatively regulates hepatic T-cell immune response
  • not only acts as an attachment factor for pathogens, but also recognizes "endogenous" activated T cells

  • CD44 is the first identified endogenous ligand of CLEC4G, and similarly, that CLEC4G is a novel ligand of CD44
  • CLEC4G-mediated signaling up-regulates the threshold of CD4(+) T cell activation via tuning the expression of CBLB
  • novel role of CLEC4G in negatively regulating BACE1 function
