Fc Receptor-Like 5 (FCRL5), also known as FcRH3 (FcRH5 in human), IRTA2, and CD307e, is a 90‑95 kDa member of the FCRL family of proteins whose amino acid (aa) sequence is reminiscent of that for classical Fc receptors. FCLR molecules are type 1 transmembrane proteins that contain from three to nine immunoglobulin-like domains. They are differentially expressed within the B cell lineage, and can either promote or inhibit B cell proliferation and activation (1, 2, 3). Mature mouse FCRL5 consists of a 470 aa extracellular domain (ECD), a 21 aa transmembrane segment, and a 79 aa cytoplasmic region. The ECD contains five Ig-like domains, while the cytoplasmic region possesses one ITAM-like motif and one immunotyrosine inhibitory motif (ITIM) (1, 3, 4). There are two major alleles for FCLR5 in mouse. The first was just described, and is found in BALB/c plus NZB mouse strains. The second is found in C57BL/6 mice, and differs by eleven scattered aa in the ECD. This creates one additional N-linked glycosylation site, and increases the SDS‑PAGE MW by 5 kDa (3). Alternate splicing of mouse FCRL5 generates at least one additional isoform that lacks the first Ig-like domain (aa 3‑90 of the mature molecule) (4). Human FCRL5, by contrast, contains up to nine Ig-like domains in a highly variable ECD, and over common regions, mouse and human FCRL5 share 49% aa sequence identity. CRL5 expression is restricted to mature B lineage cells in lymphoid tissues and blood, and is particularly noted to be expressed on T‑independent marginal zone and B1 B cells (3-8). Its ligation inhibits signaling through the B cell antigen receptor (9). Epstein-Barr virus transformation of B cells induces the up‑regulation of surface FCRL5 by a direct effect of its EBNA2 protein on FCRL5 gene transcription (10). FCRL5 on B cells functions as a receptor for the orthopoxvirus MHC class I-like protein OMCP (11). And based on the literature and R&D Systems testing, both mouse and human FCRL5 will bind to purified IgG with high affinity (5). In human, the FCRL5 gene maps to the 1q21 chromosomal locus, a common site of rearrangements in B cell malignancies. Notably, the FCRL5 protein is preferentially expressed in cell lines with 1q21 abnormalities, and is up‑regulated on tumor cells in some types of B cell malignancies (5, 7, 12‑14). In addition, soluble FCRL5 is elevated in the serum of many B cell leukemia patients (13, 15).
