Description: This MMD3 monoclonal antibody recognizes mouse CD209a, which is also known as DC-SIGN. CD209a is a type II transmembrane C-type lectin expressed on a subset of dendritic cells, including some CD4+, CD8- and plasmacytoid pre-dendritic cells. Studies indicate that CD209a expression can vary according to the activation state of the host. Moreover, CD209a is down-regulated in spleen-derived dendritic cell cultures supplemented with GM-CSF. CD209a is involved in mediating the innate immune response by binding microbial carbohydrates. Cross-blocking studies suggest that MMD3 recognizes a different a different epitope from LWC06 and 5H10. Applications Reported: This MMD3 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This MMD3 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analyis of transfected 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. eFluor® 660 is a replacement for Alexa Fluor® 647. eFluor® 660 emits at 659 nm and is excited with the red laser (633 nm). Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochome.Excitation: 633-647 nm; Emission: 668 nm; Laser: Red Laser. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered. This gene encodes a transmembrane receptor and is often referred to as DC-SIGN because of its expression on the surface of dendritic cells and macrophages. The encoded protein is involved in the innate immune system and recognizes numerous evolutionarily divergent pathogens ranging from parasites to viruses with a large impact on public health. The protein is organized into three distinct domains: an N-terminal transmembrane domain, a tandem-repeat neck domain and C-type lectin carbohydrate recognition domain. The extracellular region consisting of the C-type lectin and neck domains has a dual function as a pathogen recognition receptor and a cell adhesion receptor by binding carbohydrate ligands on the surface of microbes and endogenous cells. The neck region is important for homo-oligomerization which allows the receptor to bind multivalent ligands with high avidity. Variations in the number of 23 amino acid repeats in the neck domain of this protein are rare but have a significant impact on ligand binding ability. This gene is closely related in terms of both sequence and function to a neighboring gene (GeneID 10332; often referred to as L-SIGN). DC-SIGN and L-SIGN differ in their ligand-binding properties and distribution. Alternative splicing results in multiple variants.
