Background: TREM2

Triggering Receptor Expressed on Myeloid cells-2 (TREM2) is a type I transmembrane member of the TREM subfamily within the much larger Ig superfamily. In humans, there are 7 TREM and TREM-like receptors which play important roles in the regulation of both innate and adaptive immune response (1). Mature cynomologus TREM2 consists of an extracellular domain (ECD) with one V-type Ig-like domain, a transmembrane domain with a conserved positively-charged lysine residue, and a short cytoplasmic tail (1). The ECD of Cynomologus TREM2 shares 97% amino acid identity with human TREM2. TREM2 is expressed on macrophages, immature myeloid dendritic cells, osteoclasts, microglia, and adipocytes (2-6). It promotes the differentiation and function of osteoclasts, the production of inflammatory cytokines by adipocytes, insulin resistance, and the phagocytic clearance of bacteria (6-8). TREM2 associates with the signaling adapter protein DAP12, both preferentially expressed in microglia, to modulate cytokine production (2). Additionally in the CNS, TREM2 binds to ApoE, ApoA1, and ApoB and mediates the clearance of apoptotic neurons, amyloid plaques, and cell debris following demyelination (3-5, 9). TREM2 also interacts with and modifies the signaling of Plexin A1 on dendritic cells and osteoclasts (10). Mutations in TREM2 or DAP12 are associated with the development of Alzheimer's disease and Nasu-Hakola disease (NHD/PLOSL) which is characterized by presenile dementia and bone cysts (11, 12). Soluble TREM2 is elevated in cerebrospinal fluid of patients with active multiple sclerosis (MS), and TREM2 blockade exacerbates disease symptoms in the experimental EAE model of MS (13, 14).
