Abstract. The SLAM family of human genes currently consists of seven related members of the immunoglobulin superfamily, membrane-associated proteins, including CD150 (SLAM), CD244 (2B4), CD84, CD229 (Ly-9), BLAME, CD48, and 19A. These genes are expressed to varying degrees in subsets of immune cells (T, B, natural killer, and myeloid cells) and may function as ligands or receptors. This set of genes, related to CD2 and CD58 on Chromosome (Chr) 1p98, are found clustered close together in the… 

Functional Requirements for Interactions Between CD84 and Src Homology 2 Domain-Containing Proteins and Their Contribution to Human T Cell Activation 1

A novel function of CD84 on human lymphocytes is revealed and it is suggested that CD84 can activate human T cells via a SAP-independent mechanism.

Regulation of cellular and humoral immune responses by the SLAM and SAP families of molecules.

This review highlights recent findings that have improved the understanding of the roles of the SLAM and SAP families of molecules in immune regulation and discusses how perturbations in the signaling pathways involving these proteins can result in different disease states.

The SAP and SLAM families in immune responses and X-linked lymphoproliferative disease

This review discusses recent findings on the structure and function of proteins of the SAP and SLAM families and considers how these proteins control signal transduction that is initiated by SLAM-related receptors in professional antigen-presenting cells.

SLAM family receptors and SAP adaptors in immunity.

Recent findings on the roles of SLAM family receptors and the SAP family of adaptors are covered, with a focus on their regulation of the pathways involved in the pathogenesis of XLP and other immune disorders.

Development and characterization of domain-specific monoclonal antibodies produced against human SLAMF9.

The generated hybridoma clones 6E11 and 7G5 secreting monoclonal antibodies specific to human SLAMF9 were demonstrated to be applicable in various immunochemical analyses and may be useful tools in studies clarifying the expression and function of human SLamF9.

Expansion and diversification of the signaling capabilities of the CD2/SLAM family in Xenopodinae amphibians

The predicted receptors mostly maintain the typical VC2 ectodomains, but are highly diverse in their C-termini, which suggests a broad range of signaling capacities in the Silurana family.

Diversity of CD2 subfamily receptors in cyprinid fishes.

The CD2 family of natural killer cell receptors.

A novel mechanism for lymphocyte regulation has emerged: CD2 family members on NK cells engage ligands on neighboring NK cells, leading to NK cell stimulation, which provides interlymphocyte communication that maintains organization within the hematopoietic compartment and amplifies immune responses.

The role of SLAM/CD2 polymorphisms in systemic autoimmunity.

Structure of CD84 provides insight into SLAM family function

Structural and chemical differences in the homophilic interfaces provide a mechanism to prevent the formation of undesired heterodimers among the SLAM family homophiles, and suggest that different affinities may contribute to the distinct signaling behavior exhibited by the individual family members.



Ly108: a new member of the mouse CD2 family of cell surface proteins

The Ly108 gene encodes a protein of 331 amino acids, including a putative leader peptide, an extracellular region consisting of two Ig-like domains, a hydrophobic transmembrane segment, and a cytoplasmic tail of 69 amino acids that is most similar to CD84 and Ly9.

The X-linked lymphoproliferative-disease gene product SAP regulates signals induced through the co-receptor SLAM

It is shown that a T-cell-specific, SLAM-associated protein (SAP), which contains an SH2 domain and a short tail, acts as an inhibitor by blocking recruitment of the SH2-domain-containing signal-transduction molecule SHP-2 to a docking site in the SLAM cytoplasmic region.

Cell surface receptors Ly-9 and CD84 recruit the X-linked lymphoproliferative disease gene product SAP.

It is concluded that in activated T cells, the SAP protein binds to and regulates signal transduction events initiated through the engagement of SLAM, 2B4, CD84, and Ly-9, which suggests that combinations of dysfunctional signaling pathways initiated by these 4 cell surface receptors may cause the complex phenotypes of XLP.

Identification of the 2B4 molecule as a counter-receptor for CD48.

A chimeric fusion protein is generated consisting of the extracellular domain of murine CD48 and the C region of human IgG1 and the results of immunofluorescence and immunoprecipitation experiments identify the 2B4 molecule as a novel counter-receptor of CD48.

Regulation of SLAM-mediated signal transduction by SAP, the X-linked lymphoproliferative gene product

It is shown that signaling via the SLAM-SAP pathway in an established T cell line can alter the profile of cytokine production during T cell activation, and a mechanism by which a putative adaptor molecule is required for receptor-mediated signaling events in the immune system is identified.

Genomic organization and characterization of mouse SAP, the gene that is altered in X-linked lymphoproliferative disease

The cloning and characterization of the mouse SAP gene is reported, which is localized on the mouse X chromosome and comprises four exons spanning approximately 25 kb and appears to be restricted to T lymphocytes.

X-linked lymphoproliferative disease: a progressive immunodeficiency.

It appears therefore that the SAP/SH2D1A gene controls signaling via the SLAM family of surface receptors and thus may play a fundamental role in T cell and APC interactions during viral infections.

The CD2-subset of the Ig superfamily of cell surface molecules: receptor-ligand pairs expressed by NK cells and other immune cells.

The CD2-subset of the immunoglobulin superfamily of cell surface receptors is an emerging family of proteins involved in cellular activation and the receptors of this family, specifically CD2, 2B4 and SLAM contribute to the activation of T cells and natural killer cells.

Signaling lymphocytic activation molecule (CDw150) is homophilic but self-associates with very low affinity.

Surface plasmon resonance-based methods and analytical ultracentrifugation data indicate that SLAM-SLAM interactions are in fact considerably weaker than most other well characterized protein-protein interactions at the cell surface, which raises important questions regarding the physiological role and/or properties of such interactions.

Results indicate that the NAIL‐CD48 interaction may be an important mechanism regulating a variety of immune responses, including NK cell cytotoxicity and IFN‐γ production.
