GITR, Glucocorticoid-induced TNFR-related gene, is a member of the TNF receptor superfamily, also known as TNFRSF18, and AITR (in humans). It is expressed at low levels on resting T lymphocytes and at high levels on CD4+CD25+ T regulatory (Treg) cells. The expression of GITR on T cells can be upregulated upon activation. Interaction of GITR with its ligand (GITRL) has been demonstrated to augment T cell activation, proliferation, cytokine production, as well as MAPKs and NF-κB activation, and abrogate the inhibitory functions of CD4+CD25+ Treg cells. In vivo activation GITR causes development of autoimmune diseases and restores the suppressed immune responses.

Other Names: TNFRSF18, AITR
Structure: TNF receptor superfamily member
Distribution: Low levels on resting T cells, high on CD4+CD25+ Treg cells, expression upregulated upon activation.
Function: Co-stimulate GITR expressing cells activation, proliferation, and cytokine production; inhibit the suppressive activities of CD4+CD25+ Treg cells.
Ligand Receptor: GITR ligand (TNFSF18)
