Kidney injury molecule 1 (KIM-1), also known as Hepatitis A virus cellular receptor 1 (HAVCR1) or T-cell immunoglobulin and mucin domain 1 (TIM-1), is a class I integral membrane glycoprotein, with an ectodomain containing Ig-like domain and a mucin domain. KIM-1 acts as a membrane receptor for hepatitis A virus (HAV). KIM-1 provides a costimulatory signal for T cell activation and inhibits the development of peripheral tolerance. KIM-1 may be involved in the regulation of asthma and allergic diseases. It has been reported that KIM-1 is shed into urine after acute kidney damage and is a marker of renal tubular injury.
