Protein Name & Synonyms:
This product recognizes human Dectin-1, also known as beta-glucan receptor (Î²GR), a C-type lectin domain family member. It is a major pathogen pattern-recognition receptor that binds beta-glucans, glucose polymers that form cell-wall components or exopolymers of yeasts, fungi and some bacteria. Beta-glucans have also been used experimentally and therapeutically as immunomodulators that enhance resistance to bacterial, yeast, viral and protozoan infections, as well as tumor formation. Dectin-1 also acts as a co-stimulatory molecule on T-cells to induce their proliferation and is necessary for the TLR2-mediated inflammatory response. It is highly expressed on peripheral blood leukocytes and dendritic cells.
Store at +4 °C or at -20 °C if preferred.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
