Anti-SIGLEC8 [7C9]


Catalogue Number 151590
Applications ELISA FACS IP
Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets SIGLEC8
Reactivity Human
Relevance SIGLEC8 is a putative adhesion molecule that mediates sialic-acid dependent binding to cells. It preferentially binds to alpha2,3-linked sialic acid. and also binds to alpha2,6-linked sialic acid. The sialic acid recognition site may be masked by cis interactions with sialic acids on the same cell surface. SIGLEC8 is expressed specifically on eosinophils. The protein contains 1 copy of a cytoplasmic motif that is referred to as the immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitor motif (ITIM). This motif is involved in downmodulation of cellular responses. The phosphorylated ITIM motif binds to the SH2 domain of PTPN6/SHP-1. The SIGLEC8 gene belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily.
