|UniProt annotation for PILRA_HUMAN » Paired immunoglobulin-like type 2 receptor alpha|
|FUNCTION: Paired receptors consist of highly related activating and inhibitory receptors and are widely involved in the regulation of the immune system. PILRA is thought to act as a cellular signaling inhibitory receptor by recruiting cytoplasmic phosphatases like PTPN6/SHP-1 and PTPN11/SHP-2 via their SH2 domains that block signal transduction through dephosphorylation of signaling molecules. Receptor for PIANP. SUBUNIT: Monomer. Interacts with PTPN6/SHP-1 and PTPN11/SHP-2 upon tyrosine phosphorylation. Interacts with herpes simplex virus 1 glycoprotein B; functions as an entry coreceptor for this virus. TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Predominantly detected in hemopoietic tissues and is expressed by monocytes, macrophages, and granulocytes, but not by lymphocytes. Also strongly expressed by dendritic cells (DC); preferentially by CD14+/CD1a- DC derived from CD34+ progenitors. Also expressed by CD11c+ blood and tonsil DC, but not by CD11c- DC precursors. DOMAIN: Contains 2 copies of a cytoplasmic motif that is referred to as the immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitor motif (ITIM). This motif is involved in modulation of cellular responses. The phosphorylated ITIM motif can bind the SH2 domain of several SH2- containing phosphatases. PTPN6 seems to bind predominantly to the first ITIM motif.|
