|Application ||WB, IHC|
|Calculated MW||40076 Da|
|Other Names||Monocyte differentiation antigen CD14, Myeloid cell-specific leucine-rich glycoprotein, CD14, Monocyte differentiation antigen CD14, urinary form, Monocyte differentiation antigen CD14, membrane-bound form, CD14|
|Target/Specificity||A synthetic peptide corresponding to residues in human CD14 was used as an immunogen.|
|Format||50 mM Tris-Glycine (pH 7.4), 0.15 M NaCl, 40% Glycerol, 0.01% sodium azide and 0.05% BSA.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||CD14 Antibody 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|

CD14 is a glycophosphatidylinositol-anchored protein expressed on the surfaces of monocytes and plymorphonuclear leukocytes. It acts as a co-receptor for the detection of bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) (1). CD14 cooperates with MD-2 and TLR4 to mediate the innate immune response to bacterial LPS. It acts via MyD88, TIRAP and TRAF6, leading to NF-kappa-B activation, cytokine secretion and the inflammatory response (2). CD14 is expressed strongly on peripheral blood monocytes and macrophages, and weakly on the surface of granulocytes (1).
