The Glucocorticoid- Induced TNFR -Related gene (GITR) is a newly identified member of Tumor Necrosis factor Receptor Super Family (TNFRSF). The cytoplasmic domain of GITR is highly homologous to other TNFRSF members such as CD137, OX40 and CD40. The ligand for GITR is GITRL, which is a type II transmembrane protein that is normally expressed on the surface of antigen presenting cells, including macrophages and dendrtic cells. The cell surface marker GITR has been shown to be constitutively expressed at high levels on the surface of murine CD4+/CD25+ cells, known as Treg cells, and also up regulated on activated CD4+ and CD8+ cells. Treg cells have a clearly established immunosuppressive role capable of thwarting the host immune response to tumors. Functionally, GITR has been described as an co-stimulatory receptor that promotes survival in early phases of T-cell activation The process through which GITR induces co-stimulation is complex, entailing IL-2 as well as counter-regulatory IL-10 production. High doses of IL-2 have been reported to produce Treg cell proliferation while rendering Treg cells less effective at their suppressive function. Though GITR is present on both effector T-cells and immunosuppressive Treg cells, the effects of the receptors ligation and signaling may differ between the two subpopulations. GITRL is known to produce a state of activation, perhaps by directly or indirectly abrogating the suppressive function of Treg cells, by activating effector T-cells, or perhaps through both mechanism. Fc-GITRL has been used effectively to eradicate solid tumors in mice in vivo. The use of the physiologic ligand to GITR may have advantages over the use of an agonist antibody, such as DTA-1, in that it's small size may have better tumor penetration, more favorable half-life kinetics, and more effective co-stimultaory activity.
