Expression-ready ORF Clones
Dendritic cell-specific ICAM-3 grabbing nonintegrin
Alias : DCSIGN, CD209, CD209A, CDSIGN, DC-SIGN1, CLEC4L
DC-specific intercellular adhesion molecule-grabbing nonintegrin (DC-SIGN) is a C-type lectin involved in the capture of different pathogens.
DC-SIGN recognizes distinct carbohydrate structures such as the viral envelope glycoproteins expressed by the HIV1 , hepatitis C virus, and Ebola virus.
Non-viral pathogens can also interact with DC-SIGN including yeast, parasites and bacteria, such as Mycobacteria tuberculosis .
Following recognition, DC-SIGN internalizes the pathogens for processing and antigen presentation.
The central feature of the pathogens recognized by DC-SIGN is that they misuse DC-SIGN by distinct mechanisms that either circumvent antigen processing or alter TLR-mediated signaling, skewing T-cell responses .
