Description:

CD366 (Tim-3) is a transmembrane protein also known as T cell immunoglobulin and mucin domain containing protein-3. Tim-3 is expressed at high levels on Th1 lymphocytes and CD11b+ macrophages. Tim-3 has also been shown to exist as a soluble protein. Cells expressing Tim-3 are present at high levels in the CNS of animals at the onset of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), a disease mediated by lymphocytes secreting Th1-like cytokines. Tim-3 has been proposed to inhibit Th1-mediated immune responses and promote immunological tolerance.

Other Names: T cell immunoglobulin and mucin domain containing protein 3, hepatitis virus cellular receptor 2, CD366
Structure: Transmembrane protein containing immunoglobulin domain and mucin-like domain. It can exist as a soluble form lacking mucin and transmembrane domains.
Distribution: Expressed on activated Th1 lymphocytes, CD11b+ macrophages, and dendritic cells.
Function: Play a role in regulating macrophage activation, T cell apoptosis and immune tolerance.
Ligand Receptor: Galectin -9
