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 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.
