Technical Data
Bonzo, NT (C-X-C Chemokine Receptor Type 6, CXC-R6, CXCR-6, CDw186, G-protein Coupled Receptor STRL33, G-protein Coupled Receptor Bonzo, CD186, CXCR6, STRL33, TYMSTR)
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) require co-receptors, in addition to CD4, to infect target cells. Some G protein-coupled receptors including CCR5, CXCR4, CCR3, and CCR2b in the chemokine receptor family have been identified as HIV co-receptors. An orphan G protein-coupled receptor was recently cloned and designated Bonzo, STRL33 and TYMSTR, and identified as HIV and SIV co-receptor. Bonzo/STRL33 is used by SIV, HIV-2 and HIV-1. The messenger RNA of Bonzo/STRL33 is expressed in lymphoid tissues and activated peripheral blood lymphocytes.

Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
