Synonyms CD279 | hPD-1 | hPD-l | hSLE1 | PD-1 | PD1 | SLEB2
Gene Description PDCD1, programmed cell death 1, encodes the receptor PD-1, which is expressed on immune cells and has an inhibitory effect on immune response upon interaction with its ligands, PD-L1 and PD-L2 (PMID: 26681673, PMID: 24403232). PDCD1 (PD-1) inhibition in cancer therapy may relieve suppression of anti-tumor immune response (PMID: 26325035, PMID: 26681673, PMID: 26320063, PMID: 24403232).
