DescriptionDescription: The LWC06 antibody was generated by immunization with the recombinant extracellular region of mouse CIRE/DC-SIGN (CD209). CIRE/DC-SIGN was identified by its expression on CD8 alpha- dendritic cells and plasmacytoid predendritic cells, and is the closest homologue of human DC-SIGN. Human DC-SIGN was originally identified in human placenta for its ability to bind the HIV envelope protein gp120 in a CD4-independent manner. CIRE/DC-SIGN is a 33kDa type II transmembrane C-type lectin protein. It contains a C-terminal, extracellular, Carbohydrate Recognition Domain (CRD) that is predicted to bind mannose and other carbohydrates in a calcium dependent manner. It has been postulated that CIRE/DC-SIGN may play a role in T-dendritic cell interactions through binding with members of the ICAM family. CIRE/DC-SIGN is differentially expressed by sub-populations of dendritic cells and preliminary data suggest that its expression varies depending on the activation state of the host. CIRE/DC-SIGN is down-regulated in spleen-derived dendritic cell cultures supplemented with GM-CSF. While human DC-SIGN is predominantly expressed in dendritic cells, CIRE/DC-SIGN mRNA has also been detected in B cells. The LWC06 monoclonal antibody does not cross-react with the closely related SIGNR1, SIGNR2, SIGNR3 or SIGNR4.CD209 protein is sensitive to collagenase treatment.Applications Reported: This LWC06 antibody has been reported for use in immunoprecipitation, and immunoblotting (WB).Applications Tested: This LWC06 antibody has been tested by immunoblotting and immunoprecipitation of CIRE in CIRE-transfected CHO cells. The reactivity of this antibody has been confirmed by immunoprecipitation of CIRE with LWC06 followed by immunoblotting with another CIRE-specific monoclonal antibody, 5H10 (cat. 14-2091) and, immunoprecipitation of CIRE with 5H10 followed by immunoblotting with LWC06.Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE.Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC.Filtration: 0.2μm post-manufacturing filtered.
