Background: BTLA

B- and T-lymphocyte attenuator (BTLA; CD272) is a 50-57 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein in the CD28 family of T cell co-stimulatory molecules (1-3). Mature cynomolgus BTLA contains a 127 amino acid (aa) extracellular domain (ECD), a 21 aa transmembrane sequence, and a 111 aa cytoplasmic domain. In humans, the cytoplasmic tail transmits inhibitory signaling via two ITIM motifs and three Tyr phosphorylation sites (4, 5). The ECD of cynomolgus BTLA shares 88% aa identity with that of human BTLA. A splice variant lacking the transmembrane domain has been reported in humans (6). Unlike other CD28 family members, the BTLA Ig domain in the ECD is of the I-type rather than V-type, and BTLA does not form homodimers (7). BTLA is also unusual in its interaction with the TNF superfamily member HVEM rather than with B7 family ligands (8). BTLA is expressed on T cells, B cells, macrophages, dendritic cells, and NK cells (9). Its expression is low in naïve T cells and increases during antigen-specific induction of anergy. In B cells, BTLA expression is highest in mature naïve cells (9). BTLA apparently limits T cell numbers, since its deletion results in overproduction of T cells, especially CD8+ memory T cells that are hyper-responsive to TCR cross-linking (10). Under the control of ROR gammat and IL-7, BTLA regulates the homeostasis and inflammatory responses of gamma deltaT cells (11). The binding of BTLA and HVEM does not preclude the concurrent binding of other HVEM ligands such as LIGHT or Lymphotoxin-alpha (12).
