IGSF2, also known as CD101, is an Ig-superfamily transmembrane protein. It is expressed on dendritic cells, Langerhans cells, granulocytes, and activated T cells. IGSF2 ligation is involved in T cell activation. Polymorphisms in IGSF2 are associated with susceptibility to type I diabetes. The extracellular domains of mouse and human IGSF2 share 70% amino acid sequence identity.
Suitable for use in Flow Cytometry. Other applications not tested.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4 degrees C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile glycerol (40-50%), aliquot and store at -20 degrees C. Aliquots are stable for at least 6 months at -20 degrees C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
