|Other Names||Triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells 2, TREM-2, Triggering receptor expressed on monocytes 2, Trem2, Trem2a, Trem2b, Trem2c|
|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||Trem2a, Trem2b, Trem2c|
|Function||May have a role in chronic inflammations and may stimulate production of constitutive rather than inflammatory chemokines and cytokines. Forms a receptor signaling complex with TYROBP and triggers activation of the immune responses in macrophages and dendritic cells.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 1: Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Expressed at higher levels in the CNS, heart and lung than in lymph nodes or in other non-lymphoid tissues such as kidney, liver and testis. In the CNS not all microglia express TREM2. Brain regions with an incomplete blood-brain barrier had the lowest percentages of TREM2 expressing microglia, whereas the lateral entorhinal and cingulate cortex had the highest percentages.|
