Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab76528 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|WB||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 28 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 25 kDa).|
FunctionPlays an inhibitory role on natural killer (NK) cells cytotoxicity. Activation results in specific acid sphingomyelinase/SMPD1 stimulation with subsequent marked elevation of intracellular ceramide. Activation also leads to AKT1/PKB and RPS6KA1/RSK1 kinases stimulation as well as markedly enhanced T-cell proliferation induced by anti-CD3. Acts as a lectin that binds to the terminal carbohydrate Gal-alpha(1,3)Gal epitope as well as to the N-acetyllactosamine epitope. Binds also to CLEC2D/LLT1 as a ligand and inhibits NK cell-mediated cytotoxicity as well as interferon-gamma secretion in target cells.
Tissue specificityExpressed in a subset of NK cells predominantly in intestinal epithelium and liver. Detected in peripheral blood T-cells and preferentially in adult T-cells with a memory antigenic phenotype.

Predicted band size: 25 kDa
Observed band size: 28 kDa why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
CD161 contains a number of potential glycosylation sites (SwissProt) which may explain its migration at a higher molecular weight than predicted. This higher than expected reaction is also observed in other commercially available antibodies to this target.
