Immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibition motifs (ITIMs) consist of a 6-amino acid stretch (ILV)xYxx(LV). ITIMs are expressed in the intracytoplasmic domain of transmembrane receptors, which extinguish cell activation induced by receptors bearing immunoreceptor tyrosine-based activation motifs. The recent identification of new members of the ITIM-bearing receptor family (such as the signal-regulatory proteins) extends the ITIM concept to the negative regulation of growth factor- and oncogene… CONTINUE READING
