Background: CD74, which is also known as the MHC Class II-associated invariant chain (Ii), is a type II transmembrane glycoprotein that plays a critical role in the antigen presentation process as a chaperone of MHC Class II proteins. It is expressed at high levels on B cells and to a lesser extent on numerous antigen presenting cell (APC) types including dendritic cells, Langerhans cells, monocytes, and macrophages as well as non-traditional APCs such as epithelial cells (1,2). CD74 was initially identified for its ability to regulate the folding and intracellular trafficking of newly synthesized MHC Class II molecules. Following expression, CD74 self-assembles as a trimer that serves as a scaffold for the assembly of MHC Class II molecules. Through this interaction, CD74 blocks the peptide binding cleft of MHC Class II molecules and prevents their premature association with endogenous polypeptides (3). Binding to CD74 also facilitates the translocation of MHC Class II molecules from the endoplasmic reticulum to the endocytic compartments during antigen presentation (4). In addition to its role as an MHC Class II chaperone, CD74 is also the receptor for macrophage migration-inhibitory factor (MIF). Binding to CD74 and its co-receptor, CD44, has been shown to induce the activation of the NFkB and ERK pathways to promote cell proliferation and survival signals (5,6). Recent studies have identified CXCR2 and CXCR4 as co-receptors for CD74 where MIF binding to CD74 complexes contributes to MIF-mediated monocyte chemotaxis and the induction of Akt signaling, respectively (7,8). Increased CD74 surface expression has been reported under inflammatory conditions and in certain types of cancer cells implying a potential role in tumorigenesis (9).

Background: Antigen receptors found on the surface of B cells contain a heterodimeric signaling component composed of CD79A and CD79B, also known as Ig α and Ig β, respectively (1,2). Presence of this receptor complex is essential for B-cell development and function (3). Together these two proteins and the associated B cell receptor initiate intracellular signaling following antigen binding (4,5). An immunoreceptor tyrosine-based activation motif (ITAM) found in the CD79A intracellular region appears to be important for its function (6). Antigen binding precedes formation of the CD79A and CD79B heterodimer and subsequent activation of receptor associated kinases (7). Research has shown that CD79A is a marker for B-lineage lymphoblastic leukemia (8). Additionally, investigators have found that mutations in the CD79A (MB1) gene are associated with abnormally low levels of functional B cell receptors in some cases of chronic B cell lymphocytic leukemia (9).

Background: The B cell antigen receptor (BCR) is composed of membrane immunoglobulin molecules non-covalently associated with the heterodimeric signaling component, CD79A and CD79B (also known as Igα and Igβ, respectively) (1,2). The presence of this receptor complex is essential for B cell development and function (3). Following antigen binding, CD79A/CD79B heterodimers are phosphorylated and initiate intracellular signaling through Src family kinases, Lyn, Blk, and Fyn, as well as Syk and Btk tyrosine kinases (4,5). The complexity of BCR signaling results in a variety of distinct cellular functions, such as proliferation, tolerance, apoptosis, and differentiation (6). BCR-antigen ligation also leads to internalization of the complex, trafficking to late endosomes, and antigen presentation in major histocompatibility molecules on the B cell surface (7,8). CD79B enhances the phosphorylation of CD79A (9). Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms of CD79B have been identified (10). CD79B is widely expressed on B cell malignancies and may serve as a target for therapeutic intervention (11,12).

Background: CD80 (B7-1, BB1) and CD86 (B7-2, B70) are members of the B7 family of cell surface ligands that regulate T cell activation and immune responses. CD80 is expressed on activated antigen presenting cells, including dendritic cells, B cells, monocytes, and macrophages. CD86 is expressed on resting monocytes, dendritic cells, activated B lymphocytes, and can be further upregulated in the presence of inflammation (1-3). CD80 and CD86 are ligands for CD28, which functions as a T cell costimulatory receptor. Interaction of CD28 with CD80 or CD86 provides the second signal required for naïve T cell activation, T cell proliferation, and acquisition of effector functions (3-7). Alternatively, CD80 and CD86 also act as ligands to CTLA-4, which results in the downregulation of T cell activity (3,7-9).

Background: CD81 belongs to the tetraspanin family, which is characterized by four transmembrane domains, one short extracellular domain (ECL1), and one long extracellular domain (ECL2) (1-3). Tetraspanins interact with a variety of cell surface proteins and intracellular signaling molecules in specialized tetraspanin enriched microdomains (TEMs) where they mediate a range of processes including adhesion, motility, membrane organization, and signal transduction (3). CD81, like other tetraspanins, is enriched in exosomes (4). Many research studies demonstrate a role for CD81 in lymphocyte signaling (5-7). CD81 is also a well-characterized receptor for Hepatitis C Virus and facilitates the entry of the virus into target cells (8, 9).

Background: CD82 (KAI1) belongs to the tetraspanin family, which is characterized by four transmembrane domains, one short extracellular domain (ECL1), and one long extracellular domain (ECL2). CD82 does not have enzymatic activity and appears to function by regulating the trafficking of other proteins and organization of the cell membrane (1). CD82 was originally described as a costimulator for T cells that directly associates with CD4 and CD8, and was subsequently identified during a screen as a metastasis suppressor in prostate cancer (2,3). CD82 has since been found to act as a metastasis suppressor in a variety of cancers, and its downregulation is associated with poor prognosis in research studies (4-6). CD82 suppresses metastasis through multiple mechanisms including inhibition of cell motility and invasion by modulating c-Met and the urokinase plasminogen activator surface receptor (uPAR), as well as promotion of homotypic cell-cell adhesion by stabilizing interactions between E-cadherin and β-catenin (7-9).

Background: CD83 is a single-transmembrane protein with a calculated molecular weight (MW) of 23 kDa, but due to heavy and differential glycosylation, its apparent MW ranges from 23 to 70 kDa. CD83 is predominantly expressed on mature dendritic cells (DCs) and has been used as a DC activation/maturation marker as its increased expression is correlated with upregulation of HLA class II antigen expression on DCs (1-3). CD83 is also expressed at a low level on lymphocytes and is upregulated upon lymphocyte activation (4, 5). Thymic epithelial cells also express CD83, which is required for normal CD4+ T cell development (6, 7). CD83 is also expressed as a soluble form (sCD83) that can be found in serum of healthy adults (8). sCD83 has been shown to negatively regulate immune response by lymphocytes (9, 10).

Background: Cluster of Differentiation 8 (CD8) is a disulphide-linked heterodimer consisting of the unrelated α and β subunits. Each subunit is a glycoprotein composed of a single extracellular Ig-like domain, a polypeptide linker, a transmembrane part and a short cytoplasmic tail. On T cells, CD8 is the coreceptor for the T cell receptor (TCR), and these two distinct structures recognize the Antigen–Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC). Specifically, the Ig-like domain of CD8α interacts with the α3-domain of the MHC class I molecule. CD8 ensures specificity of the TCR–antigen interaction, prolongs the contact between the T cell and the antigen presenting cell, and the α chain recruits the tyrosine kinase Lck, which is essential for T cell activation (1).
