|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||33349 Da|
|Antigen Region||217-246 aa|
|Other Names||ICOS ligand, B7 homolog 2, B7-H2, B7-like protein Gl50, B7-related protein 1, B7RP-1, CD275, ICOSLG, B7H2, B7RP1, ICOSL, KIAA0653|
|Target/Specificity||This ICOSLG antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 217-246 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human ICOSLG.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||ICOSLG Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||B7H2, B7RP1, ICOSL, KIAA0653|
|Function||Ligand for the T-cell-specific cell surface receptor ICOS. Acts as a costimulatory signal for T-cell proliferation and cytokine secretion; induces also B-cell proliferation and differentiation into plasma cells. Could play an important role in mediating local tissue responses to inflammatory conditions, as well as in modulating the secondary immune response by co- stimulating memory T-cell function (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Isoform 1 is widely expressed (brain, heart, kidney, liver, lung, pancreas, placenta, skeletal muscle, bone marrow, colon, ovary, prostate, testis, lymph nodes, leukocytes, spleen, thymus and tonsil), while isoform 2 is detected only in lymph nodes, leukocytes and spleen. Expressed on activated monocytes and dendritic cells.|
