TIGIT / NFAT Reporter - Jurkat Cell Line

Catalog #: 60538
Size: 2 vials
TIGIT is a co-inhibitory receptor that is highly expressed in Natural Killer (NK) cells, activated CD4+, CD8+ and regulatory T cells. Interaction with the poliovirus receptor (PVR; CD155) on antigen presenting cells, such as dendritic cells, recruits Src homology (SH) domain-containing protein tyrosine phosphatase SHP1 and SHP2 or the inositol phosphatase SHIP1 and SHIP2 to the TIGIT ITIM domain. This increases IL-10 release and suppresses NF-kB and NFAT T cell receptor (TCR) signaling, which blocks T cell proliferation and cytokine production. It serves as a competitive inhibitor of CD226, a co-stimulatory receptor for CD155. TIGIT targeting antibodies that block this T cell-intrinsic inhibitory effects have shown enhanced anti-tumor and anti-viral functions in preclinical studies.
Recombinant Jurkat T cell expressing firefly luciferase gene under the control of NFAT response elements with constitutive expression of human TIGIT (V-set and immunoglobulin domain-containing protein 9, VSIG9, V-set and transmembrane domain-containing protein 3, and VSTM3, GenBank Accession No. NM_173799).
