- Description: Dendritic Cell-Specific ICAM-3-Grabbing Non-Integrin (DC-SIGN; CD209) is a type II plasma membrane PRR abundantly expressed in antigen-presenting cells such as dendritic cells (DCs) and activated macrophages. As member of the C-type Lectin Receptor (CLR) family, DC-SIGN binds a plethora of pathogens, ranging from viruses like HIV-1, ebola virus, and hepatitis C virus, to larger pathogens like Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Candida albicans. This N80A mutant lacks the N-glycosylation ligand binding domain.
- Research area: Cell Signaling & Signal Transduction; Immunology
- Production details: CHO cell lines stably expressing DC-SIGN-N80 were established by Lipofectamin 2000 transfection, and were cultured in HamĂ˘ÂÂs F-12 medium supplemented with 10% heat-inactivated FBS, 1% Antibiotic Antimycotic Solution , and 0.5Ă˘ÂÂmg/ml of the aminoglycoside antibiotic G418.
- For Research Use Only
- Target: Dendritic Cell-Specific Intercellular adhesion molecule-3-Grabbing Non-integrin lacking the ligand binding domain N80.
