1/500 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 60, 75 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 45 kDa).
FunctionInteraction with CADM1 promotes natural killer (NK) cell cytotoxicity and interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) secretion by CD8+ cells in vitro as well as NK cell-mediated rejection of tumors expressing CADM3 in vivo.
Tissue specificityIn the immune system, expression is restricted to activated class-I MHC-restricted cells, including NKT and CD8 cells. Strongly expressed in spleen, thymus, small intestine, peripheral blood leukocyte, and in Purkinje neurons in cerebellum. Expressed at much lower levels in testis, ovary, colon, lung and lymphoid tissues.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the nectin family. Contains 1 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain. Contains 1 Ig-like V-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain.
