|Description:||Rabbit polyclonal antibody to COLEC12.|
|Immunogen:||Recombinant protein of human COLEC12|
|Formulation:||PBS with 0.02% sodium azide, 50% glycerol, pH7.3.|
|Synonyms:||CLP1; NSR2; SRCL; SCARA4|
|Background:||This gene encodes a member of the C-lectin family, proteins that possess collagen-like sequences and carbohydrate recognition domains. This protein is a scavenger receptor, a cell surface glycoprotein that displays several functions associated with host defense. It can bind to carbohydrate antigens on microorganisms, facilitating their recognition and removal. It also mediates the recognition, internalization, and degradation of oxidatively modified low density lipoprotein by vascular endothelial cells.|
|Storage:||Store at -20℃. Avoid freeze / thaw cycles.|
|Recommended Dilutions:||WB 1:500 - 1:2000|
Target (Information from UniProt)
|Function:||Scavenger receptor that displays several functions associated with host defense. Promotes binding and phagocytosis of Gram-positive, Gram-negative bacteria and yeast. Mediates the recognition, internalization and degradation of oxidatively modified low density lipoprotein (oxLDL) by vascular endothelial cells. Binds to several carbohydrates including Gal-type ligands, D-galactose, L- and D-fucose, GalNAc, T and Tn antigens in a calcium-dependent manner and internalizes specifically GalNAc in nurse-like cells. Binds also to sialyl Lewis X or a trisaccharide and asialo-orosomucoid (ASOR). May also play a role in the clearance of amyloid beta in Alzheimer disease.|
|Tissue Specificity:||Expressed in perivascular macrophages. Expressed in plaques-surrounding reactive astrocytes and in perivascular astrocytes associated with cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) in the temporal cortex of Alzheimer patient (at protein level). Strongly expressed in placenta. Moderately expressed in heart, skeletal muscle, small intestine and lung. Weakly expressed in brain, colon, thymus and kidney. Expressed in nurse-like cells. Expressed in reactive astrocytes and vascular/perivascular cells in the brain of Alzheimer patient.|
