Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0000272
UniProt IDO00481
Primary gene name(s)BTN3A1
Synonym gene name(s)BTF5
Protein nameButyrophilin subfamily 3 member A1
Protein functionPlays a role in T-cell activation and in the adaptive immune response. Regulates the proliferation of activated T-cells. Regulates the release of cytokines and IFNG by activated T-cells. Mediates the response of T-cells toward infected and transformed cells that are characterized by high levels of phosphorylated metabolites, such as isopentenyl pyrophosphate. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:21113407, ECO:0000269|PubMed:21918970, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22767497, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22846996}.
