  • Application notesIs unsuitable for IHC-P or IP.
  • Target

    • FunctionNon-covalently associates with activating receptors of the CD300 family. Cross-linking of CD300-TYROBP complexes results in cellular activation.
    • Tissue specificityExpressed at low levels in the early development of the hematopoietic system and in the promonocytic stage and at high levels in mature monocytes. Expressed in hematological cells and tissues such as peripheral blood leukocytes and spleen. Also found in bone marrow, lymph nodes, placenta, lung and liver. Expressed at lower levels in different parts of the brain especially in the basal ganglia and corpus callosum.
    • Involvement in diseaseDefects in TYROBP are a cause of polycystic lipomembranous osteodysplasia with sclerosing leukoencephalopathy (PLOSL) [MIM:221770]; also called presenile dementia with bone cysts or Nasu-Hakola disease (NHD). PLOSL is a recessively inherited disease characterized by a combination of psychotic symptoms rapidly progressing to presenile dementia and bone cysts restricted to wrists and ankles. PLOSL has a global distribution, although most of the patients have been diagnosed in Finland and Japan, with an estimated population prevalence of 2x10(-6) in the Finns.

    Anti-DAP12 antibody [EPR5173] images

    • Overlay histogram showing THP1 cells stained with ab124834 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% human serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab124834, 1/100 dilution) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H&L) (ab150077) at 1/2000 dilution for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was rabbit IgG (monoclonal) (1μg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control. Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 20mW Argon ion laser (488nm) and 525/30 bandpass filter.
    • IHC-Fr image of human blood vessels stained with Ab124834 (1/500). The fixed brain section were permeabilise in 0.1% PBS-Triton X for 1h. The sections were incubated with 10% donkey serum for 1 h at 24°C to block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The sections were then incubated with Ab124834 used at 1/500 dilution, overnight at 4°C. The secondary antibody was Alexa Fluor® 488 donkey anti-rabbit used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
