Detection of Human TIM-3 by Flow Cytometry

Upregulation of immune checkpoint ligands on T cells after dendritic cell stimulation. T cells of 7–14 healthy donor were cocultured with autologous TLR-3-DCs pulsed with CMV, EBV, influenza, tetanus (CEFT) peptide pool or with CEFT peptide pool alone. Expression of various inhibitory checkpoint molecules was analyzed by flow cytometry. The percentage of positive cells is presented as box-and-whisker plots for CD4+(A) and for CD8+(B) T cells. *p < 0.05; **p < 0.01. Image collected and cropped by CiteAb from the following publication (http://journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fimmu.2018.00385/full), licensed under a CC-BY license.

Background: TIM-3

TIM-3 (T cell immunoglobulin and mucin domain-3), also known as HAVCR2, is a 60 kDa member of the TIM family of immune regulating molecules. TIMs are type I transmembrane glycoproteins with one Ig-like V-type domain and a Ser/Thr-rich mucin stalk region (1, 2). Mature human TIM-3 consists of a 181 amino acid (aa) extracellular domain (ECD), a 21 aa transmembrane segment, and a 78 aa cytoplasmic tail (3). An alternatively spliced isoform is truncated within the mucin-like stalk. Within the ECD, human TIM-3 shares 58% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat TIM-3. TIM-3 is up‑regulated on several populations of activated myeloid cells (macrophage, monocyte, dendritic cell, microglia, mast cell) and T cells (Th1, CD8+, NK, Treg) (3-10). Its binding to Galectin-9 induces a range of immunosuppressive functions which enhance immune tolerance and inhibit anti-tumor immunity (11). TIM-3 ligation attenuates CD8+ and Th1 cell responses (11-13) and promotes the activity of Treg and myeloid derived suppressor cells (8, 11, 13, 14). In addition, dendritic cell-expressed TIM-3 dampens inflammation by enabling the phagocytosis of apoptotic cells and the cross-presentation of apoptotic cell antigens (4). It also binds the alarmin HMGB1, thereby preventing the activation of TLRs in response to released tumor cell DNA (7). TIM-3 interactions with Galectin-9 can alternatively trigger immune stimulatory effects, such as the coactivation of NK cell cytotoxicity (10).
