|Other Names||Sialic acid-binding Ig-like lectin 12, Siglec-12, Sialic acid-binding Ig-like lectin-like 1, Siglec-L1, SIGLEC12, SIGLECL1, SLG|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP1634c was selected from the Center region of human SIGLEC12. 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.|
|Function||Putative adhesion molecule that mediates sialic-acid dependent binding to cells. The sialic acid recognition site may be masked by cis interactions with sialic acids on the same cell surface.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Isoform Short is highly expressed in spleen, small intestine and adrenal gland; it is lower expressed in thyroid, placenta, brain, stomach, bone marrow, spinal chord and breast. Isoform Long is highly expressed in spleen, small intestine and bone marrow; it is lower expressed in thyroid, placenta, thymus, trachea, stomach, lung, adrenal gland, fetal brain and testis|

Sialic acid-binding immunoglobulin-like lectins (SIGLECs) are a family of cell surface proteins belonging to the immunoglobulin superfamily. They mediate protein-carbohydrate interactions by selectively binding to different sialic acid moieties present on glycolipids and glycoproteins. SIGLEC12 is a member of the SIGLEC3-like subfamily of SIGLECs. Members of this subfamily are characterized by an extracellular V-set immunoglobulin-like domain followed by two C2-set immunoglobulin-like domains, and the cytoplasmic tyrosine-based motifs ITIM and SLAM-like. This protein, upon tyrosine phosphorylation, has been shown to recruit the Src homology 2 domain-containing protein-tyrosine phosphatases SHP1 and SHP2. It has been suggested that the protein is involved in the negative regulation of macrophage signaling by functioning as an inhibitory receptor.
