 Purity/Purification    Highly Purified
90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE and visualized by silver stain.
 Form/Format    Supplied as a lyophilized powder in PBS.

 Activity    Measured by its ability to bind biotinylated laminarin (1, 3- -glucan) with an estimated KD < 5nM.
 Endotoxin Level    < 0.1 EU per 1 g of the protein as determined by the LAL method.
 Reconstitution    It is recommended that sterile phosphate-buffered saline be added to the vial to prepare a working stock solution of no less than 100ug/ml. The carrier-free protein should be used immediately upon reconstitution to avoid losses in activity due to non-specific binding to the inside surface of the vial. For long term storage as a dilute solution, a carrier protein (e.g. 0.1% HSA or BSA) should be added to the vial.
Section Bar
 Preparation and Storage    Lyophilized samples are stable for up to twelve months at -20 degree C. Upon reconstitution, this protein, in the presence of a carrier protein, can be stored under sterile conditions at 2-8 degree C for one month or at -20 degree C in a manual defrost freezer for three months without detectable loss of activity. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
 Other Notes    Small volumes of Clec7a recombinant protein vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.

Related Product Information for Clec7a recombinant protein

   Dectin-1, also known as CLEC7A and the -glucan receptor, is a 33kD type II transmembrane C-type lectin that participates in the innate immune response to fungal pathogens. Although Dectin-1 structurally resembles other CLEC molecules, it binds its ligands in a calcium-independent manner (1, 2). Mature human Dectin-1 consists of a short N-terminal ITAM-containing cytoplasmic tail, a transmembrane segment, and a C-terminal stalk with carbohydrate recognition domain (CRD) in the extracellular domain (3, 4). Alternate splicing generates one major splice form that lacks the stalk region (3-5). This isoform is expressed on the surface of monocytes, macrophages, myeloid DC, neutrophils, eosinophils, B cells, and CD4+ T cells (6). The CRD selectively binds -glucan polymers, a major component of yeast and mycobacterial cell walls (5-7). Yeast -glucan is accessible to Dectin-1 only during the process of cell budding. Dectin-1 does not recognize the filamentous form of yeast (8). Dectin-1 mediates the phagocytosis of zymosan particles and intact yeast (8-10). In the membrane, Dectin-1 co-localizes with TLR2 in the presence of zymosan, and the two receptors cooperate in ligand recognition and the propagation of proinflammatory signaling (9,11-13). Dectin-1 also interacts with tetraspanin CD37. This increases its stability on the cell membrane and inhibits ligand-induced signaling (14). Dectin-1 knockout mice show increased susceptibility to pathogenic infection (15-16). The CRD of human Dectin-1 shares 77%, 60%, and 60% aa sequence identity with that of bovine, mouse and rat Dectin-1, respectively. It shares 29%-39% aa sequence identity with the CRD of other subgroup members, including CLEC-1, CLEC-2, CLEC9A, CLEC12B, LOX-1, and MICL.

 UniProt Comments for Clec7a    dectin-1: Lectin that functions as pattern receptor specific for beta-1,3-linked and beta-1,6-linked glucans, such as cell wall constituents from pathogenic bacteria and fungi. Necessary for the TLR2-mediated inflammatory response and for TLR2-mediated activation of NF-kappa-B. Enhances cytokine production in macrophages and dendritic cells. Mediates production of reactive oxygen species in the cell. Mediates phagocytosis of C.albicans conidia. Binds T-cells in a way that does not involve their surface glycans and plays a role in T-cell activation. Stimulates T-cell proliferation. Up-regulated during differentiation from monocytes into dendritic cells. Isoform 5 interacts with RANBP9. 8 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
