The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 66 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
May be involved in adhesive interactions of activated T and NK cells during the late phase of the immune response. Promotes NK cell-target adhesion by interacting with PVR present on target cells. May function at a time after T and NK cells have penetrated the endothelium using integrins and selectins, when they are actively engaging diseased cells and moving within areas of inflammation.
Expressed on normal T-cell lines and clones, and some transformed T-cells, but no other cultured cell lines tested. It is expressed at very low levels on activated B-cells.
Involvement in disease
Defects in CD96 are a cause of C syndrome (CSYN) [MIM:211750]; also called Opitz trigonocephaly syndrome. This syndrome is characterized by trigonocephaly and associated anomalies, such as unusual facies, wide alveolar ridges, multiple buccal frenula, limb defects, visceral anomalies, redundant skin, psychomotor retardation and hypotonia. Note=A chromosomal aberration involving CD96 has been found in a patient with C syndrome. Translocation t(3;18)(q13.13;q12.1). CD96 gene was located at the 3q13.13 breakpoint. Precise structural analysis around the breakpoint showed that the gene was disrupted by the translocation in exon 5, probably leading to premature termination or loss of expression of CD96 protein. No gene was detected at the chromosome 18 breakpoint. Defects in CD96 are a cause of C-like syndrome (CLSYN) [MIM:605039]; also called Opitz trigonocephaly-like syndrome. The C-like syndrome seems to be a severe form of the C syndrome. It is controversial whether there is (1) a gradient of spectrum in the C syndrome, from the mild form (C syndrome) to the severe form (C-like syndrome), or (2) genetic heterogeneity among the patients with the C syndrome.
