Cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated protein 4 (CTLA4) in an immunoglobulin superfamily receptor important for downregulating immune responses. CTLA4 is expressed in T-cells where it transmits an inhibitory signal to the cells.

The secreted soluble form of CTLA-4 (sCTLA-4) lacks the transmembrane domain as well as the membrane proximal cysteine residue required for covalent homodimerization and therefore sCTLA-4 is only present in monomeric form.

In human and mouse sCTLA-4 mRNA expression is mainly detected in resting T-cells, at levels similar to transmembrane CTLA-4 (Tm-CTLA-4) mRNA, however following T-cell activation, Tm-CTLA-4 is upregulated and becomes the predominant transcript. Mutations in CTLA4 are associated with multiple autoimmune diseases, including type 1 diabetes (T1D), Graves’ disease (GD), rheumatoid arthritis and celiac disease, an increase of sCTLA-4 is also seen in autoimmune diseases.
