The OX40 receptor is also known as CD134, ACT35, and tumour necrosis factor receptor superfamily member 4. This receptor is expressed on activated CD4+ and CD8+ T cells and B cells. The OX40 receptor binds to the OX40 ligand to provide a co-stimulatory signal that is independent of CD28. Blockade of OX40-OX40 ligand interactions has been shown to ameliorate experimental EAE and inflammatory bowel disease, imply that these interactions are important in the pathogenesis of some autoimmune diseases.
