The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use 10µl for 106 cells. or 100µl whole blood.
FunctionPlays a role as adhesion receptor functioning by homophilic interactions and by clustering. Recruits SH2 domain-containing proteins SH2D1A/SAP. Increases proliferative responses of activated T-cells and SH2D1A/SAP does not seen be required for this process. Homophilic interactions enhance interferon gamma/IFNG secretion in lymphocytes and induce platelet stimulation via a SH2D1A/SAP-dependent pathway. May serve as a marker for hematopoietic progenitor cells.
Tissue specificityPredominantly expressed in hematopoietic tissues, such as lymph node, spleen and peripheral leukocytes. Expressed in macrophages, B-cells, monocytes, platelets, thymocytes, T-cells and dendritic cells. Highly expressed in memory T-cells.
Developmental stageExpression is slightly increased in naive B-cells after the first dividion. By contrast, expression on memory B-cells decreased with each successive division.
DomainITSM (immunoreceptor tyrosine-based switch motif) motif is a cytoplasmic motif which may bind SH2D1A.
Post-translational modificationsPhosphorylated by tyrosine-protein kinase LCK on tyrosine residues following ligation induced by agonist monoclonal antibody. The association with SH2D1A/SAP is dependent of tyrosines phosphorylation of its cytoplasmic domain Phosphorylated on Tyr-296 and Tyr-316 following platelet aggregation. N-glycosylated.
