Description: The RMT1-4 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse CD365 (also known as TIM1 and HAVCR1) and is a member of the T cell immunoglobulin domain, mucin-like domain (TIM) gene family. CD365 has been found on activated CD4+ T cells, mast cells, and a subset of B cells. CD365 is involved in renal injury, tissue homeostasis, and T cell costimulation. CD365 promotes the differentiation of Th2 cells and the production of IL-4. CD365 can bind several ligands, including Hepatitis A virus, phosphatidylserine, TIM4, IgA, as well as itself. CD365 and TIM4 can mediate uptake of apoptotic cells through recognition of phosphatidylserine. CD365, as well as the other TIM family members, are associated with susceptibility to atopic and autoimmune diseases. In humans, certain polymorphic variants of CD365 are strongly associated with protection against atopy, and this association occurs only in individuals who have had past infection with hepatitis A virus (HAV). Applications Reported: This RMT1-4 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This RMT1-4 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse CD365 (TIM1) 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. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered. HAVCR1, a 359 A.A Class 1 integral membrane glycoprotein, is used by Hepatitis A virus to infect humans. It consists of a conserved N-terminal Cys-rich region, IgV (Immunoglobulin Variable region like) domain and a TSP-rich mucin domain in the extracellular region followed by a highly conserved tyrosine kinase phosphorylation motif in the cytoplasmic region. HAVCR1 is expressed on terminally differentiated CD4+ Th2 cells and regulates cytokine production. It plays an important role in the regulation of immune responses in the development of asthma and allergic responses. Its expression is critically upregulated in dedifferentiated kidney cells, thus indicating a possible role in regeneration of proximal tubule epithelium in Kidneys. HAVCR1 has shown to be upregulated in renal carcinomas, suggesting its role in tumor progression and metastasis.
