ab170190 - Mouse monoclonal IgG1, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
May be involved in regulating immune reactivity. May play a role in modulating dendritic cells (DC) differentiation and/or maturation. May be involved via its ITIM motif (immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motifs) in the inhibition of B-cell-receptor-mediated calcium mobilization and protein tyrosine phosphorylation.
Expressed in dendritic cells, myeloid cells, B-cells and HL-60 cells (at protein level). TNF alpha, IL-1 alpha, and LPS, down-regulated expression at the surface of neutrophils (at protein level). Expressed preferentially in hematopoietic tissues. Expressed in peripheral blood leukocytes, neutrophils, moderate quantities in spleen, lymph node, and bone marrow, and at very low levels in thymus. Expressed in Ag-presenting cells (DC, monocytes, macrophages and B-cells), as well as on granulocytes. Expression was decreased in DC by signals inducing its maturation (e.g. CD40 ligand, LPS, and TNF alpha).
Contains 1 C-type lectin domain.
Contains 1 copy of a cytoplasmic motif that is referred to as the immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitor motif (ITIM). This motif is involved in modulation of cellular responses. The phosphorylated ITIM motif can bind the SH2 domain of several SH2-containing phosphatases.
