FC - Quality tested

Application Notes:

Additional reported applications include: in vitro activation of thymocytes1, immunoprecipitation from cell lysates and cell-free supernatants1,2 and immunohistochemical staining of frozen tissue sections1.

Recommended Usage:

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is ≤1.0 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume.  It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

CD26, also known as DPP IV or THAM, is a 220 kD type II transmembrane homodimer. It consists of an α/β hydrolase domain and an eight-blade beta-propeller domain.  After proteolysis of the membrane-bound CD26, a soluble form of DPP IV is released. CD26 is expressed on thymocytes (development dependent), T cells, B cells, NK cells, and macrophages. It is involved in T cell costimulation, endothelial cell migration and proteolysis processes.

Other Names: Dipeptidyl peptidase 4, THAM
Structure: Homodimer, each monomer is a single chain type II transmembranal molecule of 110 kD that consists of two domains; soluble form is released after proteolysis of the membrane form
Distribution: Mature thymocytes, activated T cells, B cells, NK cells, macrophages
Function: T cell costimulation, endothelial cell migration, proteolysis
Ligand Receptor: ADA, collagen
Interaction: CAV1, IGF2R, PTPRC, BCL10, CARD1, IKBKB
