LILRA2 (Leukocyte Immunoglobulin Like Receptor A2, also known as LIR7 and ILT1) is a Protein Coding gene. The encoded protein is an activating receptor that inhibits dendritic cell differentiation and antigen presentation and suppresses the innate immune response. It is an activating receptor highly expressed in inflammatory tissues and is involved in granulocyte and macrophage activation. LILRA2 is primarily expressed on the surface of cells of the innate immunity including monocytes, macrophages, neutrophils, basophils, and eosinophils but not on lymphocytes and NK cells. LILRA2 cross-linking on monocytes induces pro-inflammatory cytokines while inhibiting dendritic cell differentiation and antigen presentation. Diseases associated with LILRA2 include Tuberculoid Leprosy and Leprosy 3.
