Description: The 5C6 monoclonal antibody reacts with the human NKG2D, a 42 kDa lectin-like molecule expressed by NK cells, gammadelta T cells, some CD4^+ and CD8^+ T cells. Human NKG2D forms complexes with DAP10, a membrane adaptor protein, and has the ability to costimulate multiple NK activation receptors. The counter-receptor for human NKG2D has been identified as MICA/MICB expressed on epithelial tumors from lung, breast, kidney, ovary, prostate and colon carcinoma. 5C6 and 1D11 block binding of soluble MICA to gammadelta TCR T cell clones and inhibit lysis by these cells. 5C6 and 1D11 induced NKG2D function of redirected lysis of FcReceptor bearing P815 cells. Applications Reported: The 5C6 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This 5C6 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 µL (0.25 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. Excitation: 488-561 nm; Emission: 578 nm; Laser: Blue Laser, Green Laser, Yellow-Green Laser. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.Natural killer (NK) cells are lymphocytes that can mediate lysis of certain tumor cells and virus-infected cells without previous activation. They can also regulate specific humoral and cell-mediated immunity. NK cells preferentially express several calcium-dependent (C-type) lectins, which have been implicated in the regulation of NK cell function. This gene encodes a member of the NKG2 family, and the encoded transmembrane protein is characterized by a type II membrane orientation (extracellular C terminus) and the presence of a C-type lectin domain. The NKG2 gene family is located within the NK complex, a region that contains several C-type lectin genes preferentially expressed in NK cells.
