Description

Tim-4 is a transmembrane protein known as T cell immunoglobulin and mucin domain containing protein-4. It is expressed on antigen-presenting cells and not on T cells. Tim-4 binds to Tim-1 to promote T cell proliferation by enhancing cell division and reducing apoptosis. Tim-4 bind to phosphatidylserine through its FG-CC’ binding cleft in the N-terminal IgV domain to facilitate the clearance of apoptotic cells or bodies.

Antigen Details

Structure
Transmembrane protein containing immunoglobulin domain and mucin-like domain
Distribution

Unlike the other Tims, Tim-4 is only expressed by antigen-presenting cells, but not by T cells.

Function
Tim-4 is expressed on antigen-presenting cells. It provides co-stimulation to promote T cell proliferation and survival and has a possible role in clearance of apoptotic cells by binding phosphatidylserine.
Interaction
Phosphatiylserine is the ligand of Tim-4 and Tim-4 is a ligand of Tim-1.
Ligand/Receptor
Phosphatidylserine, TIM1
Cell Type
Antigen-presenting cells
Biology Area
Immunology
