The extracellular domain of PD-1 (programmed cell death protein 1) contains a single IgV domain. Signaling mediated through (PD-1) can lead to a number of immunological outcomes. These include inhibition of cell death of regulatory T cells, activation of the cell death of the antigen-specific T cells. Combination of these effects can lead to self-tolerance as well as escape of tumors from immune surveillance. The PD-1/PD-L1 axis has been extensively exploited and has made huge impact on cancer therapy.   PD-1 Fc fusion proteins (P099F and P099G) interact with PD-L1 (P101F and P101G) and contain the binding epitope for Pembrolizumab (Keytruda) - Merck’s anti-PD-1 antibody.

Interacting protein(s): PD-L1 (P7101FP7101G), PD-L2 (P7103FP7103G)

PD-1 was identified in apoptosis induced cells by subtractive hybridization. Like other CD28, CTLA-4 and ICOS, it is a membrane anchored IgSF family member and like CTLA-4, it contains a single IgV excellular domain and an ITIM (immune receptor tyrosine based inhibition motif)-containing intracellular region. PD-1 lacks the MYPPPY motif that is required for binding of B7-1 and B7-2(CD86), instead it binds to two ligands, PDL1 and PDL2. Also, similar to CTLA-4, engagement of PD-1 with its ligand triggers inhibitory signaling, diminish cell proliferation and cytokine production.

PD-1 deficiency, similar to CTLA-4 deficiency, results in lymphoproliferative disorders including splenomegaly, B cell expansion, with elevated serum antibody levels, lupus glomerulonephritis, arthritis, and autoimmune cardiomyopathy. Thus, after T cell activation, PD-1 and CTLA-4 are upregulated in order to contain the T cell response. Both molecules appears to be critical for maintenance of tolerance, though PD-1 appears to be more important for the peripheral than central tolerance.

On the non-professional antigen presenting parenchymal cells (do not express B7-1 and B7-1), the expression of PD-1 ligands and the B7-H2 (ICOS ligand) underlying the counter-balance nature of the PD-1 and ICOS pathways.
