|Background:||CD137, also known as TNFRSF9 or 4-1BB, is an inducible costimulatory molecule expressed mainly on activated T cells. Its ligand, known as 4-1BBL, is expressed on activated macrophages, mature B cells, hematopoietic stem cells, and myeloid progenitor cells. CD137 signaling leads to maintaining the survival of activated T cells and CD8+ memory T cells, and clonal expansion of T cells, but also to suppressing myelopoiesis and dendritic cell development. Triggered CD137 induces a cytokine release profile regulating peripheral monocyte survival. Soluble forms of CD137 may provide negative control mechanism for some immune responses.|
