Abstract

CS1 is a novel member of the CD2 subset of immunoglobulin superfamily (IgSF) expressed on NK, T and stimulated B cells. The cytoplasmic domain of CS1 contains immunoreceptor tyrosine-based switch motif (ITSM) which is present in 2B4, SLAM and CD84. The signaling adaptor molecule SAP/SH2D1A, the defective gene in X-linked lymphoproliferative disease (XLPD), binds to ITSM and regulates immune cell function. However, recent studies indicate that CS1 may be regulated by a SAP-independent mechanism. In this study, we have examined the ligand specificity of CS1 and the effect of CS1 interaction with its ligand on the cytolytic activity of YT, a human NK cell line. Recombinant fusion protein, CS1-Ig, containing the CS1 extracellular domain and Fc portion of the human IgG bound cells transfected with CS1. CS1-Ig did not show any binding to cells expressing other members of the CD2 family. The cytolytic activity of YT was enhanced in presence of soluble CS1-Ig fusion protein. These results demonstrate that CS1 is a self-ligand and homophilic interaction of CS1 regulates NK cell cytolytic activity.
