Citation Information: Biological Chemistry. Volume 383, Issue 7-8, Pages 1133–1138, ISSN (Print) 1431-6730, DOI: 10.1515/BC.2002.123, June 2005

Publication History

Published Online:


Activated T lymphocytes express high levels of dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DP IV)/CD26. Recent studies support the notion that DP IV may play an important role in the regulation of differentiation and growth of T lymphocytes. This article gives a short overview on DP IV/CD26 expression and effects on immune cells in vitro and in vivo. A major focus of this review are clinical aspects of the function of CD26 on hematopoietic cells and the potential usage of synthetic DP IV inhibitors as therapeutics in inflammatory disorders.
