Human Mincle neutralizing and detection antibody - Monoclonal Mouse IgG2b

Neutralizing and detection antibody against hMincle
Neutralizing and detection antibody against hMincle

Anti-hMincle-IgG (clone 15H5) is a monoclonal mouse IgG2b antibody specific for human (h) Mincle. This antibody was screened for neutralization activity and flow cytometry. It is produced in hybridomas and purified by affinity chromatography with protein G.

Macrophage-inducible C-type lectin (Mincle) is a C-type lectin receptor encoded by the C-type lectin domain family 4 member E (CLEC4E) gene. This receptor has emerged as an important player in innate immunity. It recognizes a variety of exogenous and endogenous stimuli, such as mycobacteria, some fungi, and necrotic cells [1, 2].

Details

Mincle is a member of the C-type lectin receptor (CLR) family. Mincle recognizes a variety of exogenous and endogenous stimuli, such as mycobacteria, certain fungi, and necrotic cells [1, 2]. Exogenous ligands for Mincle include fungal α-mannose, and the mycobacterial glycolipid, trehalose-6’6’-dimycolate (TDM), also known as cord factor the immunostimulatory component of Mycobacterium tuberculosis [3].
Mincle also binds trehalose-6,6-dibehenate (TDB) which is a synthetic analog of TDM. Furthermore, Mincle senses damaged cells by recognizing endogenous damage-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs) [4]. Upon ligand recognition, Mincle interacts with the Fc receptor common γ-chain (FcRγ), which triggers intracellular signaling through Syk leading to CARD9-dependent NF-κB activation. Syk also induces the mobilization of intracellular calcium (Ca2+) and the activation of the calcineurin-NFAT pathway.
