Human OCIL/CLEC2d, also known as Lectin-Like Transcript-1 (LLT-1), is a type II transmembrane protein belonging to the natural killer (NK) cell receptor group of the C-type lectin superfamily. It is found on hematopoietic cells, osteoblasts, and chondrocytes. By alternative splicing, at least three isoforms exist. Isoform 1 is synthesized as a 191 amino acid (aa) precursor with a C-terminal 132 aa extracellular domain (ECD) that contains the C-type lectin domain. The aa sequence of human OCIL isoform 1 ECD is 49% and 50% identical to the mouse and rat OCIL ECD, respectively. Human OCIL preferentially binds high molecular weight sulfated glycosaminoglycans and is a ligand for the single human NKR-P1A receptor (CD161). Human OCIL blocks osteoclast differentiation. Engagement of OCIL with CD161 on NK cells also inhibits NK cell-mediated cytotoxicity and IFN-gamma secretion.
