Fibrinogen-like Protein 1 (FGL1) – A Major Ligand of LAG-3

LAG-3 is a coinhibitory immune checkpoint receptor that inhibits T cell response by binding to MHC-II. In a recent study published in Cell, the lab of Prof Lieping Chen (Yale University, US) identifies Fibrinogen-like protein 1 (FGL1), a molecule secreted by the liver and pancreas, as a major ligand for LAG-3 in both human and mouse. FGL1 binding to LAG-3 inhibits T cell response. FGL1 is upregulated in human cancers and high plasma FGL1 is associated with poor clinical outcomes in patients treated with anti-PD1 therapy.
