DC-SIGN Polyclonal Antibody, ALEXA FLUOR 488 Conjugated
Also known as
Anti-DC-SIGN PAb ALEXA FLUOR 488
ALEXA FLUOR® 488
This antibody was obtained by immunization of the host with KLH conjugated synthetic peptide derived from human DC-SIGN/CD209
Background of the antigen
Dendritic cells (DCs) that control immune responses were recently found to capture and transport HIV from the mucosal area to remote lymph nodes, where DCs hand over HIV to CD4+ T lymphocytes. DCs also amplify the amount of virus and extend the duration of viral infectivity. Multiple strains of HIV1, HIV2 and SIV bind to DCs via DCSIGN. ICAM3 is the natural ligand for DC-SIGN. A DC-SIGN homologue (termed CD299, DC-SIGNR, L-SIGN and DCSIGN2) was identified recently. DC-SIGN forms a novel gene family with DC-SIGNR and many alternatively spliced isoforms of DC-SIGN and DC-SIGNR. The expression of DC-SIGN was found in mucosal tissues including placenta, small intestine, and rectum.

For facs or microscopy Alexa 1 conjugate.Alexa Fluor 488 has the same range to that of fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC), yet the Anti-DC-SIGN has a very high photo stability. As a result of this photo stability, it has turned into an antibody for fluorescent microscopy and FACS FLOW cytometry. It is distinguished in the FL1 of a FACS-Calibur or FACScan. Also Alexa Fluor 488 is pH stable.If you buy Antibodies supplied by Bioss Primary Conjugated Antibodies. ALEXA FLUOR they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
