Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab53427 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
IP Use at an assay dependent concentration.
IHC-Fr Use at an assay dependent concentration.

The epitope recognised by 2A11 is sensitive to H2O2 treatment, therefore quenching with 0.3% H2O2 should be performed after incubation with the primary antibody.

Flow Cyt 1/10 - 1/50.

Use 10µl of the suggested working dilution to label 106 cells in 100µl.
ab18536 - Rat monoclonal IgG2b, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.

  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for IHC-P or IHC-R.
  • Target

    • Function
      Lectin that functions as pattern receptor specific for beta-1,3-linked and beta-1,6-linked glucans, such as cell wall constituents from pathogenic bacteria and fungi. Necessary for the TLR2-mediated inflammatory response and for TLR2-mediated activation of NF-kappa-B. Enhances cytokine production in macrophages and dendritic cells. Mediates production of reactive oxygen species in the cell. Mediates phagocytosis of C.albicans conidia. Binds T-cells in a way that does not involve their surface glycans and plays a role in T-cell activation. Stimulates T-cell proliferation.
    • Tissue specificity
      Highly expressed in peripheral blood leukocytes and dendritic cells. Detected in spleen, bone marrow, lung, muscle, stomach and placenta.
    • Involvement in disease
      Defects in CLEC7A may be a cause of familial candidiasis type 4 (CANDF4) [MIM:613108]. It is a rare disorder with altered immune responses and impaired clearance of fungal infections, selective against Candida. It is characterized by persistent and/or recurrent infections of the skin, nails and mucous membranes caused by organisms of the genus Candida, mainly Candida albicans.
    • Sequence similarities
      Contains 1 C-type lectin domain.
    • Post-translational
      Phosphorylated on tyrosine residues in response to glucan binding.
    • Cellular localization
      Cytoplasm and Cell membrane.
