|Application ||WB, IF, E|
|Other Accession||NP_001124183, 195222725|
|Calculated MW||19972 Da|
|Application Notes||CLEC2A antibody can be used for detection of CLEC2A by Western blot at 1 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Target/Specificity||CLEC2A; CLEC2A antibody is human specific. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants have been observed.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||CLEC2A antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||CLEC2A Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Plays a role in modulating the extent of T-cell expansion. Enhances the expansion of TCR-stimulated T-cells by increasing their survival through enhanced expression of anti- apoptotic proteins. May modulate the capacity of T-cells to home to lymph nodes through SELL. Facilitates dedicated immune recognition of keratinocytes via interaction with its receptor KLRF2 by stimulating natural killer cell mediated cytotoxicity.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Mainly expressed in skin. Also expressed in keratinocytes, spleen, thymus, small intestine, peripheral blood monocytes, bone marrow, ovary, testis and skin. High expression in CD8(+), B-lymphocytes and naive CD4(+) T-cells. Restricted mostly to proliferating lymphocytes. Not detected in myeloid leukocytes or natural killer (NK) cells.|

CLEC2A Antibody: CLEC2A (C-type lectin domain family 2 member A), also known as PILAR (proliferation-induced lymphocyte-associated receptor) is involved in modulating T-cell expansion. It is a 32 kDa single-pass type II membrane protein that contains one C-type lectin domain in its extracellular region and belongs to the CTL/CTLD superfamily. CLEC2A is mainly expressed in skin and highly expressed in CD8(+), B lymphocytes and naive CD4(+) T cells. Manipulation of CLEC2A signaling may be important for treatment of autoimmune diseases and cancer.
