CD1c (Cluster of differentiation antigen 1c) is a 43 kDa member of the CD1 family of molecules. It is expressed by thymocytes, dendritic cells and B cells, and exists as part of a noncovalent complex with 12 kDa beta 2‑microglobulin. It is found in the plasma membrane and early endosomes (but not lysosomes), and is presumed to present glycolipids and acylated peptides to T cells. Mature human CD1c is a 316 amino acid (aa) type I transmembrane glycoprotein. It contains a 285 aa extracellular domain (ECD) (aa 18‑302) plus a 10 aa cytoplasmic tail. The ECD shows one Ig‑like domain (aa 203‑296) that associates with beta 2‑microglobulin, and a TyrGlnAspIle internalization motif in the cytoplasmic tail. There are three potential splice variants. One shows a Trp substitution for aa 327‑333, a second shows an eight aa substitution for aa 298‑333, and a third shows a 50 aa substitution for aa 297‑333. There appears to be no direct mouse counterpart to human CD1c.
