Human CD272 (BTLA, B and T Lymphocyte Attenuator) is a member of the Immunoglobulin superfamily and has homology to CD152(CTLA-4).  Engagement of BTLA by its co receptor CD270 (HVEM, a TNF superfamily member) can down regulate activated T and B cell responses.  BTLA levels on antigen specific CD8+ T cells have been reported to decrease in viral specific, but not melanoma specific activated lines (1). 

Recombinant CD272-muIg binds to recombinant HVEM-muIg in EIA. 

Ancell has a matched pair of antibodies (cat # 372-020 and 272-030) for capture and detection of CD272 protein in EIA (see attachment).
