About the Book

The CD200 molecule (originally called OX-2) is a type I membrane glycoprotein, ubiquitously expressed on a variety of cells, especially those important in inflammation and immunity (dendritic cells, B cells, activated T cells and endothelial cells). It belongs to the immunoglobulin supergene family, possesses two Ig domains, and exhibits significant homology with CD80 and CD86, molecules known to be important in regulating the development of an alloimmune response.Our laboratory was the first to document a relationship between high expression of CD200 and the survival of transplanted organs. Many other studies from our lab and others have suggested that CD200 overexpression induces altered immunoregulation in allo-transplantation, auto-immune disease, fetal loss, and cancer.Based on these data, we hypothesized that transgenic overexpression of CD200 in vivo would promote allograft survival in rodent models. This thesis describes the generation of a doxycycline inducible CD200-transgenic mouse, and preliminary testing of some of these hypotheses.
