The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/500 - 1/1000. Predicted molecular weight: 28 kDa. WB ab89894 has been tested only against the immunogen and negative results were obtained in ELISA against mouse IL15RA.
FunctionReceptor for interleukin-15. Expression of different isoforms may alter or interfere with signal transduction. Isoform 5, isoform 6, isoform 7 and isoform 8 do not bind IL15. Signal transduction involves STAT3, STAT5, STAT6, JAK2 (By similarity) and SYK.
Tissue specificityIsoform 1, isoform 3, isoform 4, isoform 5, isoform 6, isoform 7, isoform 8 and isoform 9 are widely expressed. Expressed in fetal brain with higher expression in the hippocampus and cerebellum than in cortex and thalamus. Higher levels of soluble sIL-15RA form in comparison with membrane-bound forms is present in all brain structures.
Post-translational modificationsA soluble form (sIL-15RA) arises from proteolytic shedding of the membrane-anchored receptor. The cleavage involves ADAM17/TACE (By similarity). It also binds IL-15 and thus interferes with IL-15 binding to the membrane receptor. Phosphorylated by activated SYK. N-glycosylated and O-glycosylated.
Cellular localizationSecreted > extracellular space; Membrane. Nucleus membrane. Mainly found associated with the nuclear membrane and Endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Golgi apparatus membrane. Cytoplasmic vesicle membrane. Membrane. Isoform 5, isoform 6, isoform 7 and isoform 8 are associated with endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi and cytoplasmic vesicles, but not with the nuclear membrane.
