Background: BST-2/Tetherin
BST2, also known as Tetherin or PDCA1 and designated CD317, is a 30-35 kDa interferon-inducible protein that shows an unusual topology. The N-terminus is cytoplasmic, followed by a transmembrane segment, an extracellular loop, and a C-terminal GPI-linkage. BST2 is expressed on bone marrow stromal cells and is upregulated in breast cancer and astrocytoma. It binds to ILT7 on plasmacytoid dendritic cells and inhibits proinflammatory TLR7 and TLR9 signaling. BST2 inhibits the release of Kaposi sarcoma virus, HIV-1, and Lassa virus from infected cells, but this function is counteracted by viral proteins which directly bind and trigger the degradation of BST2.
