Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot.
Applications Key: W=Western Blotting
Species predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology: Monkey.
Specificity / Sensitivity
Dectin-1 Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total Dectin-1 protein. This antibody cross-reacts with an 80 kDa protein of unknown origin. Alternative splicing of the Dectin-1 transcript can lead to eight isoforms with predicted molecular weights ranging from 5-27 kDa. Glycosylation causes Dectin-1 to run higher than its predicted molecular weight.
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues near the amino terminus of human Dectin-1 protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Western blot analysis of extracts from 293T cells, mock transfected (-) or transfected with a construct expressing Myc/DDK-tagged full-length human Dectin-1 (hDectin-1-Myc/DDK; +), using Dectin-1 Antibody.
Western blot analysis of extracts from MUTZ-3 cells undifferentiated (-) or differentiated (+) into interstitial dendritic cells with Human Granulocyte Macrophage Colony Stimulating Factor (hGM-CSF) #8922 (100 ng/ml), Human Interleukin-4 (hIL-4) #8919 (100 ng/ml), and Human Tumor Necrosis Factor-α (hTNF-α) #8902 (2.5 ng/ml) for 8 d, using Dectin-1 Antibody (upper) or β-Actin (D6A8) Rabbit mAb #8457 (lower).
Dectin-1 is a C-type lectin receptor expressed by macrophages, monocytes, dendrtic cells, neutrophils, and a subset of γδ T cells (1,2). Dectin-1 is a glycoprotein with eight different isoforms, generated through alternative splicing (3-5). It plays an important role in anti-fungal immunity by acting as a pattern recognition receptor for β-glucans found on the cell wall of fungi and some bacteria (5,6). Dectin-1 is composed of a short amino-terminal cytoplasmic domain containing an ITAM-like motif, a transmembrane domain, and an extracellular carboxy-terminal C-type lectin domain (5). Dectin-1 recognizes β-glucans through its C-type lectin domain and transduces signals through its ITAM-like motif by recruiting and activating Syk (7,8). Dendritic cells activated through Dectin-1 promote differentiation of Th17 cells by producing IL-6 and IL-23 (9).
