Rat anti Mouse TIM-1 antibody, clone RMT1-10 recognizes mouse Tim-1 (T-cell immunoglobulin mucin 1), a cell surface glycoprotein and member of the immunoglobulin superfamily, which was first identified as the hepatitis A virus cellular receptor (HAVCR), and is highly expressed in the liver (isoform Tim-1a) and the kidneys (isoform Tim-1b).

Tim-1 is highly expressed by activated CD4+ T cells, and acts as a positive/negative co-stimulatory molecule of T cell proliferation, cytokine production and tolerance abrogation, and is the receptor for Tim-4, expressed on APCs. Tim-1 expression is greater on Th2 than Th1 cells, and studies have shown that interaction between Tim-1 on Th2 cells and Tim-4 on dendritic cells (DCs), enhances Th2 cell function, and have implicated Tim-1 as a critical player in the development of atopic disease, and in particular airway hypersensitivity.

Polymorphic forms of Tim-1 are associated with increased susceptibility to asthma, eczema and Rheumatoid arthritis.

Rat anti Mouse TIM-1 antibody, clone RMT1-10 has been shown to promote Th2 responses, and inhibit antigen-specific T cell proliferation, in contrast to the agonistic function of many Tim-1 antibodies (Xiao et al. 2007).

Rat anti Mouse TIM-1 antibody, clone RMT1-10 has been shown to reduce the severity of EAE (experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis) and delay disease onset, in mice studies (Xiao et al. 2007).
