Description:

TIM4 is a transmembrane protein known as T cell immunoglobulin and mucin domain containing protein-4. It is expressed on antigen-presenting cells and not on T cells.TIM4 binds to TIM1 to promote T cell proliferation by enhancing cell division and reducing apoptosis.TIM4 bind to phosphatidylserine through its FG-CC’ binding cleft in the N-terminal IgV domain to facilitate the clearance of apoptotic cells or bodies.

Other Names: T cell immunoglobulin and mucin domain containing protein-4
Structure: Transmembrane protein containing immunoglobulin domain and mucin-like domain
Distribution: Unlike the other TIMs, TIM4 is only expressed by antigen-presenting cells, but not by T cells.
Function: TIM4 is expressed on antigen-presenting cells. It provides co-stimulation to promote T cell proliferation and survival and has a possible role in clearance of apoptotic cells by binding phosphatidylserine.
Ligand Receptor: Phosphatidylserine, TIM1
Interaction: Phosphatiylserine is the ligand of TIM4 and TIM4 is a ligand of TIM1
