Protein

Triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells 2

Gene

Trem2

Organism
Mus musculus (Mouse)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Forms a receptor signaling complex with TYROBP and triggers activation of the immune responses in macrophages and dendritic cells. May have a role in chronic inflammations and may stimulate production of constitutive rather than inflammatory chemokines and cytokines.1 Publication

Expressioni

Tissue specificityi

Expressed at higher levels in the CNS, heart and lung than in lymph nodes or in other non-lymphoid tissues such as kidney, liver and testis. In the CNS not all microglia express TREM2. Brain regions with an incomplete blood-brain barrier had the lowest percentages of TREM2 expressing microglia, whereas the lateral entorhinal and cingulate cortex had the highest percentages.2 Publications
