|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||31kDa,21KD KDa|
|Other Names||Programmed cell death 1 ligand 2, PD-1 ligand 2, PD-L2, PDCD1 ligand 2, Programmed death ligand 2, Butyrophilin B7-DC, B7-DC, CD273, PDCD1LG2, B7DC, CD273, PDCD1L2, PDL2|
|Format||0.01M TBS(pH7.4) with 1% BSA, 0.03% Proclin300 and 50% Glyce|
|Storage||Store at -20 °C for one year. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles. When reconstituted in sterile pH 7.4 0.01M PBS or diluent of antibody the antibody is stable for at least two weeks at 2-4 °C.|
|Synonyms||B7DC, CD273, PDCD1L2, PDL2|
|Function||Involved in the costimulatory signal, essential for T- cell proliferation and IFNG production in a PDCD1-independent manner. Interaction with PDCD1 inhibits T-cell proliferation by blocking cell cycle progression and cytokine production (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 3: Secreted. Isoform 1: Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in heart, placenta, pancreas, lung and liver and weakly expressed in spleen, lymph nodes and thymus.|
B7DC is a 33kDa member of the immunoglobulin receptor superfamily expressed on DC, liver and a small subset of macrophages as well as a few transformed cell lines. B7DC has been reported to be stimulatory on dendritic cells when cross linked and to inhibit T cell activation upon engaging the PD1 receptor. B7DC has also been reported to bind to an alternative receptor and to mediate T cell activation through non PD1 mediated interactions
