The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use 10µl for 106 cells.
(or 100 μl of whole blood).
Promotes cell-cell contacts by forming homophilic or heterophilic trans-dimers. Heterophilic interactions have been detected between PVRL1/nectin-1 and PVRL3/nectin-3 and between PVRL1/nectin-1 and PVRL4/nectin-4.
Involvement in disease
Defects in PVRL1 are the cause of ectodermal dysplasia Margarita Island type (EDMI) [MIM:225060]; also known as Zlotogora-Ogur syndrome, cleft lip/palate-ectodermal dysplasia syndrome (CLPED1) or ectodermal dysplasia 4. Ectodermal dysplasia defines a heterogeneous group of disorders due to abnormal development of two or more ectodermal structures. EDMI is an autosomal recessive syndrome characterized by the association of cleft lip/palate, ectodermal dysplasia (sparse short and dry scalp hair, sparse eyebrows and eyelashes), and partial syndactyly of the fingers and/or toes. Two thirds of the patients do not manifest oral cleft but present with abnormal teeth and nails. Defects in PVRL1 are the cause of non-syndromic orofacial cleft type 7 (OFC7) [MIM:225060]. Non-syndromic orofacial cleft is a common birth defect consisting of cleft lips with or without cleft palate. Cleft lips are associated with cleft palate in two-third of cases. A cleft lip can occur on one or both sides and range in severity from a simple notch in the upper lip to a complete opening in the lip extending into the floor of the nostril and involving the upper gum.
