Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab106046 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/10. Predicted molecular weight: 26 kDa. On a 12% non-reducing SDS-PAGE a prominent band of ~50Kda is detected. Under reducing conditions a 26 KDa band is detected.
ELISA Use at an assay dependent dilution. Biotinylated ab106046 was used as detector in ELISA at 1µg/ml TBS/Tween-20/Ca.
IHC-Fr 1/10. Cryostat sections (7µm) of mouse tissue were acetone fixed and stained o/n at 4C in TBS/2% goat serum
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent dilution. Hyphae of C. albicans were fixed on poly-l-lysine coated slides with ice-cold acetone. Slides were incubated for 1h at RT with ab106046.


  • FunctionCalcium-dependent lectin involved in innate immune defense. Binds mannose, fucose and N-acetylglucosamine on different microorganisms and activates the lectin complement pathway. Binds to late apoptotic cells, as well as to apoptotic blebs and to necrotic cells, but not to early apoptotic cells, facilitating their uptake by macrophages. May bind DNA.
  • Tissue specificityPlasma protein produced mainly in the liver.
  • Involvement in diseaseNote=There is an association between low levels of MBL2 and a defect of opsonization which results in susceptibility to frequent and chronic infections.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 C-type lectin domain.
    Contains 1 collagen-like domain.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted.

Anti-Mannan Binding Lectin antibody [14D12] images

  • ab106046 detecting Mannan Binding Lectin deposition in developing murine atherosclerotic lesions following 10 weeks of high fat feeding. Mannan Binding Lectin was detected in and around invading macrophages invading the intima (insert). Mannan Binding Lectin bound at sites of necrosis (upper right corner). No Mannan Binding Lectin binding was shown in the media or on fibrous caps covering the thickened intima.
