Definition / general
  • Triggering REceptor on Myeloid cells; member of Ig superfamily
  • sTREM1: soluble levels of TREM1
  • Part of family of immune sensors which signal innate immune system and amplifies immune responses that promote pro-inflammatory cytokine production; neutrophils are major source of TREM1
  • TREM1 is an activating receptor and requires association with transmembrane adapter molecule DAP12 (DNAX-associated protein 12) for cell signaling (PLoS One 2013;8:e82498, J Leukoc Biol 2013;93:209)
Pathophysiology / etiology
  • TREM1 and MMPs orchestrate an "adaptive" form of innate immunity by modulating the monocyte response to endotoxin (J Leukoc Biol 2012;91:933)
  • Dendritic cells: TREM1 induction by hypoxic microenvironment activates immature dendritic cells and regulates Th1 cell trafficking (Eur J Immunol 2013;43:949)
