Programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1)

Programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1; CD279; PDCD1) is a 288 amino acid (aa) type I transmembrane protein expressed on T cells, B cells, natural killer T cells, activated monocytes, and dendritic cells (1). PD-1 belongs to the CD28 family of receptors and contains two tyrosine-based signaling motifs: a tyrosine-based inhibitory motif (ITIM) and an immunoreceptor tyrosine-based switch motif (ITSM) (2) (1). PD-1 has two known ligands, PD-L1 (B7-H1; CD274) and PD-L2 (B7-DC; CD273), members of B7 family (1) (2). Engagement of PD-1 by its ligands leads to the inhibition of T cell receptor-mediated lymphocyte proliferation and cytokine secretion which leads to exhaustion and apoptosis of tumor-specific T cells (3). Therefore PD-1 plays critical roles in the regulation of autoimmunity, tumor immunity, infectious immunity, transplantation immunity, allergy and immune privilege (4).
