|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||39 kDa|
|Application Notes||IL-15RA antibody can be used for detection of IL-15RA by Western blot at 1 - 2 µg/mL.|
|Target/Specificity||IL15RA; Multiple isoforms of IL-15RA are known to exist.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||IL-15RA antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year.|
|Precautions||IL-15RA Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||High-affinity receptor for interleukin-15. Can signal both in cis and trans where IL15R from one subset of cells presents IL15 to neighboring IL2RG-expressing cells. Expression of different isoforms may alter or interfere with signal transduction. Isoform 5, isoform 6, isoform 7 and isoform 8 do not bind IL15. Signal transduction involves SYK.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein Nucleus membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Note=Mainly found associated with the nuclear membrane Isoform 6: Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Golgi apparatus membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Cytoplasmic vesicle membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Note=Isoform 5, isoform 6, isoform 7 and isoform 8 are associated with endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi and cytoplasmic vesicles, but not with the nuclear membrane Isoform 8: Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Golgi apparatus membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Cytoplasmic vesicle membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Note=Isoform 5, isoform 6, isoform 7 and isoform 8 are associated with endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi and cytoplasmic vesicles, but not with the nuclear membrane|
|Tissue Location||Isoform 1, isoform 3, isoform 4, isoform 5, isoform 6, isoform 7, isoform 8 and isoform 9 are widely expressed. Expressed in fetal brain with higher expression in the hippocampus and cerebellum than in cortex and thalamus. Higher levels of soluble sIL-15RA form in comparison with membrane-bound forms is present in all brain structures|

IL-15RA Antibody: Interleukin 15 (IL-15RA) is a cytokine receptor that specifically binds IL-15 with high affinity. IL-15 regulates T and natural killer cell activation and proliferation. The IL-15 and IL-2 receptors share two subunits, IL-2R beta and IL-2R gamma, and IL-15RA is structurally related to IL-2RA, an additional IL-2-specific alpha subunit necessary for high affinity IL-2 binding. Unlike IL-2RA, IL-15RA is capable of binding IL-15 with high affinity independent of the other subunits. IL-15RA is thought to enhance cell proliferation and expression of apoptosis inhibitor Bcl-xL and Bcl-2.
