Butyrophilin (BTN) genes encode a set of related proteins. Studies in mice have shown that one of these, BTN1A1, is required for milk lipid secretion in lactation, whereas butyrophilin-like 2 is a coinhibitor of T cell activation. To understand these disparate roles of BTNs, we first compared the expression and functions of mouse Btn1a1 and Btn2a2. Btn1a1 transcripts were not restricted to lactating mammary tissue but were also found in virgin mammary tissue and, interestingly, spleen and…

The ontogeny of Butyrophilin-like (Btnl) 1 and Btnl6 in murine small intestine

TLDR
The data show that the expression of Btnl1 and BtNL6 is delayed in the murine neonatal gut and that the appearance of the Btnc1 andBtnl6 proteins in the intestinal mucosa associates with the expansion of Vγ7Vδ4 TCR IELs.

Murine Butyrophilin-Like 1 and Btnl6 Form Heteromeric Complexes in Small Intestinal Epithelial Cells and Promote Proliferation of Local T Lymphocytes

TLDR
The results show that murine epithelial cell-specific Btnl proteins can form intrafamily heterocomplexes and suggest that the interaction between BtNL proteins and IELs regulates the expansion of Iels in the intestinal mucosa.

The butyrophilin 1a1 knockout mouse revisited: Ablation of Btn1a1 leads to concurrent cell death and renewal in the mammary epithelium during lactation

TLDR
The plasticity of the mammary epithelium and the importance of functional BTN1a1 expression for maintenance of terminally differentiated secretory cells and optimal milk production throughout lactation are highlighted.

Inhibits T Cell Activation A Butyrophilin Family Member Critically

TLDR
It is found that butyrophilin-like (BTNL)1 molecule functions to dampen T cellactivation and immune diseases and is a critical inhibitory molecule for T cell activation andimmune diseases.

A Butyrophilin Family Member Critically Inhibits T Cell Activation

TLDR
It is found that butyrophilin-like (BTNL)1 molecule functions to dampen T cell activation and is a critical inhibitory molecule for T cellactivation and immune diseases.

Knockout of butyrophilin subfamily 1 member A1 (BTN1A1) alters lipid droplet formation and phospholipid composition in bovine mammary epithelial cells

TLDR
Results suggest that BTN1A1 plays an important role in regulating LD synthesis via a mechanism involving membrane phospholipid composition.

Regulation of Immunity by Butyrophilins.

TLDR
Molecules such as BTN3A1 (CD277), myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein, and mouse Skint1 and Btnl2, all members of the butyrophilin family, show greater structural and functional diversity than the canonical B7 receptors.

Key implication of CD277/butyrophilin-3 (BTN3A) in cellular stress sensing by a major human γδ T-cell subset.

TLDR
A novel role played by B7-like molecules in human γδ T-cell antigenic activation is demonstrated and paves the way for new strategies to improve the efficiency of immunotherapies using Vγ9Vδ2 T cells.

The B7 Homolog Butyrophilin BTN2A1 Is a Novel Ligand for DC-SIGN1

TLDR
The data are consistent with tumor- or tissue-specific glycosylation of BTN2A1 governing recognition by DC-SIGN on immature monocyte-derived dendritic cells, and those high-mannose moieties are instrumental for binding toDC-SIGN.

BTNL2, a Butyrophilin-Like Molecule That Functions to Inhibit T Cell Activation1

TLDR
BTNL2-Ig inhibited T cell proliferation and TCR activation of NFAT, NF-κB, and AP-1 signaling pathways and is the first member of the butyrophilin family that regulates T cell activation, which has implications in immune diseases and immunotherapy.

BTNL2, a Butyrophilin/B7-Like Molecule, Is a Negative Costimulatory Molecule Modulated in Intestinal Inflammation

TLDR
Structural and functional data suggest a role for BTNL2 as a negative costimulatory molecule with implications for inflammatory disease.

Expression of butyrophilin (Btn1a1) in lactating mammary gland is essential for the regulated secretion of milk-lipid droplets.

TLDR
It is speculated that Btn1a1 functions either as a structural protein or as a signaling receptor by binding to xanthine dehydrogenase/oxidase, and is essential for the regulated secretion of milk-lipid droplets.

Frontline: Characterization of BT3 molecules belonging to the B7 family expressed on immune cells

TLDR
A new subfamily called BT3 is presented, which belongs to the B7/BT family, which consists of three members that exhibit 95% identity and form a monophylogenetic group along with the BT‐related members.

The PRY/SPRY/B30.2 Domain of Butyrophilin 1A1 (BTN1A1) Binds to Xanthine Oxidoreductase

TLDR
BTN1A1 functions in vivo to stabilize the association of XOR with the MFGM by direct interactions through the PRY/SPRY/B30.2 domain, and the potential significance of BTN 1A1/XOR interactions in the mammary gland and other tissues is discussed.

VSIG4, a B7 family-related protein, is a negative regulator of T cell activation.

TLDR
The specific expression of VSIG4 on resting macrophages in tissue suggests that this inhibitory ligand may be important for the maintenance of T cell unresponsiveness in healthy tissues.

Butyrophilin Is Expressed in Mammary Epithelial Cells from a Single-sized Messenger RNA as a Type I Membrane Glycoprotein*

TLDR
The role butyrophilin may play as the principal scaffold for the assembly of a complex with xanthine oxidase and other proteins that functions in the budding and release of milk-fat globules from the apical surface during lactation is discussed.

Cloning, localization, and structure of new members of the butyrophilin gene family in the juxta-telomeric region of the major histocompatibility complex

TLDR
Six new members of the butyrophilin (BT) gene family have been identified by cDNA and genomic cloning, and all the BT2 and BT3 subfamily members map close to BT in the juxta-telomeric region of the major histocompatibility complex.

The B7 family revisited.

TLDR
The roles of the B7:CD28 family members in regulating immune responses are revisited, and the therapeutic potential of these families is discussed.
