|Positive Control||Western blot: 293 cells, A549 cells lysate, IHC: human lung carcinoma, FACS: A549 cells|
|Application & Usage||Western blot: ~1:1000, IHC: ~1:10–1:50, FACS: ~1:10-1:50.|
|Other Names||CD14; Monocyte differentiation antigen CD14; Myeloid cell-specific leucine-rich glycoprotein; CD_antigen=CD14; Monocyte differentiation antigen CD14, urinary form; Monocyte differentiation antigen CD14, membrane-bound form.|
|Formulation||100 µl of antibody in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||CD-14 Antibody (CT) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||In concert with LBP, binds to monomeric lipopolysaccharide and delivers it to the MD-2/TLR4 complex, thereby mediating the innate immune response to bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS). Acts via MyD88, TIRAP and TRAF6, leading to NF-kappa-B activation, cytokine secretion and the inflammatory response. Up-regulates cell surface molecules, including adhesion molecules.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Lipid-anchor, GPI-anchor.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed strongly on the surface of monocytes and weakly on the surface of granulocytes; also expressed by most tissue macrophages|

Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) elicits the secretion of mediators and cytokines produced by activated macrophages and monocytes. CD14 is a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored protein found on the surfaces of monocytes and polymorphonuclear leukocytes. CD14 functions as a receptor for LPS, resulting in the secretion of various proteins. An important component in the LPS activation of monocytes through the CD14 receptor is the “adapter molecule,” lipopolysaccharide binding protein (LBP). There are two forms of CD14, a membrane-associated form (mCD14), and a soluble form (sCD14). mCD14 responds to LPS alone and facilitates the secretion of proteins, while cells not expressing mCD14 fail to respond to LPS. The cells that lack mCD14 respond to LPS/LBP in the presence of sCD14.
