Gene Family: Leukocyte immunoglobulin like receptors (LILR)

Also known as : "CD85 receptors", "Immunoglobulin-like transcript receptors", "ILTs", "LIRs", "Ig-like transcripts", "Leukocyte immunoglobulin-like receptors", "Leucocyte Ig-like receptors"

Leukocyte immunoglobulin-like receptors: The leukocyte immunoglobulin-like receptors (LILR) are a family of receptors possessing extracellular immunoglobulin domains. They are also known as CD85, ILTs and LIR, and can exert immunomodulatory effects on a wide range of immune cells. The human genes encoding these receptors are found in a gene cluster at chromosomal region 19q13.4. [Source: Wikipedia]
