|Other Names||Lymphocyte antigen 96, Ly-96, ESOP-1, Protein MD-2, LY96, ESOP1, MD2|
|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||Cooperates with TLR4 in the innate immune response to bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS), and with TLR2 in the response to cell wall components from Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Enhances TLR4-dependent activation of NF-kappa-B. Cells expressing both MD2 and TLR4, but not TLR4 alone, respond to LPS.|
|Cellular Location||Secreted, extracellular space.|

This gene encodes a protein which associates withtoll-like receptor 4 on the cell surface and confers responsivenessto lipopolysaccyaride (LPS), thus providing a link between thereceptor and LPS signaling. Studies of the mouse ortholog suggestthat this gene may be involved in endotoxin neutralization.Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variantsencoding different isoforms.
