|Other Names||C-type lectin domain family 7 member A, Beta-glucan receptor, C-type lectin superfamily member 12, Dendritic cell-associated C-type lectin 1, DC-associated C-type lectin 1, Dectin-1, CLEC7A, BGR, CLECSF12, DECTIN1|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP13369a was selected from the N-term region of CLEC7A. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||BGR, CLECSF12, DECTIN1|
|Function||Lectin that functions as pattern receptor specific for beta-1,3-linked and beta-1,6-linked glucans, such as cell wall constituents from pathogenic bacteria and fungi. Necessary for the TLR2-mediated inflammatory response and for TLR2-mediated activation of NF-kappa-B. Enhances cytokine production in macrophages and dendritic cells. Mediates production of reactive oxygen species in the cell. Mediates phagocytosis of C.albicans conidia. Binds T-cells in a way that does not involve their surface glycans and plays a role in T-cell activation. Stimulates T-cell proliferation (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single- pass type II membrane protein Isoform 6: Cytoplasm.|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in peripheral blood leukocytes and dendritic cells. Detected in spleen, bone marrow, lung, muscle, stomach and placenta.|

This gene encodes a member of the C-type lectin/C-typelectin-like domain (CTL/CTLD) superfamily. The encoded glycoproteinis a small type II membrane receptor with an extracellular C-typelectin-like domain fold and a cytoplasmic domain with animmunoreceptor tyrosine-based activation motif. It functions as apattern-recognition receptor that recognizes a variety ofbeta-1,3-linked and beta-1,6-linked glucans from fungi and plants,and in this way plays a role in innate immune response. Alternatetranscriptional splice variants, encoding different isoforms, havebeen characterized. This gene is closely linked to other CTL/CTLDsuperfamily members on chromosome 12p13 in the natural killer genecomplex region.
