    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     plasma membrane
    basic FUNCTION
  • acting as a costimulatory signal for T-cell proliferation and cytokine secretion
  • inducing also B-cell proliferation and differentiation into plasma cells
  • may play an important role in mediating local tissue responses to inflammatory conditions, as well as in modulating the secondary immune response by co-stimulating memory T-cell function
  • may facilitate progression of acute myeloid leukemia
  • may participate in antigen presentation by epithelial cells

    ANIMAL & CELL MODELS
    Icosl -/- mice are healthy and fertile but have a reduced IgG1 production and affinity maturation, indicating a defect in T cell responses. Also have impaired T and B-cell interaction and germinal center formation
