Technical Data
Dectin 2 (Dendritic Cell-associated C-type Lectin 2, DC-associated C-type Lectin 2, Dectin-2, C-type Lectin Domain Family 6 Member A, CLEC6A, C-type Lectin Superfamily Member 10, CLECSF10) (Biotin)
Significant expression of Dectin-2 has been reported on macrophages in the red pulp and marginal zones of the spleen, kupffer cells in the liver and alveolar macrophages in the lung. Peripheral blood monocytes express low levels of dectin-2 but transient up-regulation of expression has been demonstrated on monocytes at sites of inflammation. The function of dectin-2 has not been fully determined but studies suggest a possible role in immune-surveillance.

Suitable for use in Flow Cytometry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Flow Cytometry: Neat; 10ul labels 10e6 cells in 100ul
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.

Dectin-2 (extracellular domain) Fc Fusion protein.
Purified by Protein G affinity chromatography.
Supplied as a liquid in PBS, pH 7.4, 1% BSA, 0.09% sodium azide. Labeled with Biotin.
Recognizes mouse DC-associated C-type lectin-2 (Dectin-2), a type II transmembrane protein that is a member of the C-type lectin superfamily. In mouse, dectin-2 is predominantly expressed on tissue macrophages and some dendritic cells. Does not stain brain microglia or meningeal macrophages.
Intended for research use only. Not for use in human, therapeutic, or diagnostic applications.
