Murine Mincle Detection and Neutralizing antibody (clone 6G5) - Monoclonal Rat IgG2b
Murine Mincle Detection and Neutralizing antibody - Monoclonal Rat IgG2b
Anti-mMincle-IgG (clone 6G5) is a monoclonal rat IgG2b antibody specific for murine Mincle (mMincle). This antibody was screened for neutralization activity and flow cytometry. It is produced in hybridomas and purified by affinity chromatography with protein G.
Mincle is a C-type lectin receptor that has emerged as an important player in innate immunity. This receptor recognizes a variety of exogenous and endogenous stimuli, such as mycobacteria, some fungi, and necrotic cells [1, 2].

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 .
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) . 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.
