Gene RIF (11)

27572839 LILRA2 recognizes microbially cleaved antibodies and activates innate immunity, suggesting that LILRA2 detects dangerous immunological situations in which antibodies are destroyed by pathogens.
22479404 LILRA2-mediated activation of monocytes is significantly different to LPS and that LILRA2 selectively modulates LPS-mediated monocyte activation and FcgammaRI-dependent phagocytosis.
20331378 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20237496 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19230061 The authors report the LILRA2 extracellular D1D2 domain crystal structure, which reveals structural shifts of the corresponding MHC-binding amino acid residues in comparison with LILR B1/B2, explaining its non-binding to MHC molecules.
18273033 LILRA2 Delta 419-421 isoform encoded by the splice site SNP may play a role in systemic lupus erythematosus and microscopic polyangiitis.
18273033 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18056355 LILRA2 activation, by altering GM-CSF-induced monocyte differentiation into immature DC, provides a mechanism for down-regulating the ability of the innate immune system to activate the adaptive T cell response while promoting an inflammatory response.
17998301 Progenitor mast cells expressed cell surface activating LILRA2. Mature cord-blood-derived mast cells had detectable mRNA encoding multiple LILRs, none were expressed on the cell surface.
15242876 Cross-linking of basophil LIR7 resulted in the concentration-dependent net release of histamine and cysteinyl leukotrienes that were maximal at 30 minutes, and of IL-4 that was maximal at 4 hours
12529506 LIR7 is an activating receptor for eosinophils that elicited the release of cytotoxic granule proteins, de novo lipid mediator generation, and cytokine release through vesicular transport
