LAIR1 is an inhibitory receptor belonging to the Ig superfamily. It is a type I transmembrane protein with one extracellular Ig-like domain and two cytoplasmic ITIMs. Four LAIR1 splice variants exist. LAIR1b has a 17 aa deletion outside the Ig loop in the extracellular domain. It differs from LAIR1c by one aa residue. LAIR1d has a 77 aa truncation in the cytoplasmic domain. LAIR1 is expressed on NK cells, T cells, B cells, monocytes, dendritic cells and most thymocytes. The extracellular domain of human LAIR1 shares 40% aa identity with that of the mouse protein.
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 before opening. DO NOT FREEZE! Stable at 4 degrees C as an undiluted liquid. Dilute only prior to immediate use. Stable for 12 months. 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. Freezing APC conjugates will result in a substantial loss of activity. APC conjugates are sensitive to light.
