Description: This P84 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse CD172a, also known as signal regulatory protein a (SIRPa). This cell surface glycoprotein consists of three Ig-like extracellular domains and two cytoplasmic immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motifs (ITIMs). The ITIM domains have been demonstrated to recruit and bind the Src homology 2 domain-containing phosphatases SHP-1 and SHP-2. CD172a is expressed on monocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells, but not on T and B lymphocytes. Moreover, neurons and other tissues of the central nervous system have also been shown to express CD172a. The integrin-associated protein CD47 is the extracellular ligand for CD172a. Studies show that CD172a is involved in dendritic cell-mediated T cell activation, neutrophil migration, and phagocytosis. This monoclonal antibody has been reported to have neutralizing activity. Applications Reported: This P84 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This P84 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse bone marrow cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.5 µg per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.Excitation: 633-647 nm; Emission: 660 nm; Laser: Red Laser. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered. CD172a, also known as signal-regulatory protein alpha, is a receptor-type transmembrane glycoprotein expressed on cells of myeloid origin, including granulocytes, dendritic cells (DCs), macrophages, mast cells and haematopoietic stem cells. CD172a acts as a substrate for several activated tyrosine kinases, including EGFR, PDGFR, src and insulin receptor and is involved in the negative regulation of receptor tyrosine kinase-coupled signaling pathways. Ligand binding of CD172a to integrin-associated protein CD47, results in tyrosine kinase phosphorylation of immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motifs (ITIMs) within the cytoplasmic region of CD172a, mediating the recruitment and activation of the tyrosine phosphatases SHP-1 and SHP-2. These then act as regulators of cellular function, through dephosphorylation of specific substrates. Ligation of CD172a with CD47 has been demonstrated in several regulatory processes, including the inhibition of host cell phagocytosis by macrophages and the bi-directional activation of T cells and DCs.
