Human Dectin-2 neutralizing and detection antibody - Monoclonal mouse IgG2a

Neutralizing and detection antibody against hDectin-2
Neutralizing and detection antibody against hDectin-2

Anti-hDectin-2-IgG (clone Q7-4B5) is a monoclonal mouse IgG2a antibody against human Dectin-2 (hDectin-2). This antibody was screened for neutralization activity and flow cytometry. It is produced in hybridomas and purified by affinity chromatography with protein G.  

Dendritic cell-associated C-type lectin-2 (Dectin-2) is a C-type lectin receptor (CLR), encoded by the C-type lectin domain containing 6A (CLEC6A) gene. It plays an important role in antifungal innate immunity [1, 2]. It binds high mannose-type carbohydrates and has been demonstrated to be the functional receptor for α-mannans.

Dectin-2 is a member of the C-type lectin receptor (CLR) family and plays an important role in antifungal innate immunity [1].
CLRs comprise a large family of receptors that bind to carbohydrates in a calcium-dependent manner. The lectin activity of these receptors is mediated by conserved carbohydrate-recognition domains (CRDs).
Dectin-2 is a type II transmembrane CLRs with a single CRD domain. Dectin-2 binds high mannose-type carbohydrates and was shown to be the functional receptor for a-mannans. Upon binding to its ligand, Dectin-2 signals through the kinase Syk and the adaptors CARD9/Bcl-10/MALT1 triggering the activation of NF-kB and the subsequent production of pro-inflammatory cytokines [1, 2].
Dectin-2 is implicated in anti-bacterial immunity and allergy [3]. In fact, it has been demonstrated that Dectin-2 is important for the induction of Th17 in response to fungal infection [4].
