Use 1µg for 106 cells. ab170192-Mouse monoclonal IgG2b, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
C-type lectin that functions as cell-surface receptor for a wide variety of ligands such as damaged cells, fungi and mycobacteria. Plays a role in the recognition of pathogenic fungi, such as Candida albicans. The detection of mycobacteria is via trehalose 6,6'-dimycolate (TDM), a cell wall glycolipid. Specifically recognizes alpha-mannose residues on pathogenic fungi of the genus Malassezia. Recognizes also SAP130, a nuclear protein, that is released by dead or dying cells. Transduces signals through an ITAM-containing adapter protein, Fc receptor gamma chain /FCER1G. Induces secretion of inflammatory cytokines through a pathway that depends on SYK, CARD9 and NF-kappa-B.
ab100846 staining CLEC4E in colorectal cancer tissue by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue sections). The sections were subjected to antigen retrieval in 0.1M citric acid. The primary antibody was diluted 1/50 and incubated with the sample for 2 hours at room temperature. Antibody was detected by DAB staining.
Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with ab100846 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab100846, 1µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG2b [PLPV219] (ab91633, 2µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed.
