All CCR4/CD194 reagents are produced in house and quality controlled, including 35 CCR4/CD194 Gene, 2 CCR4/CD194 qPCR. All CCR4/CD194 reagents are ready to use.
CCR4/CD194 cDNA clones are full length sequence confirmed and expression validated. There are 13 kinds of tags for each CCR4/CD194 of different species, especially GFP tag, OFP tag, FLAG tag and so on. There are three kinds of vectors for choice, cloning vector, expression vector and lentivrial expression vector.
CCR4 is a chemokine receptor that has a critical role in immune cell trafficking. T-helper type 2 cells (Th2), regulatory T cells (Treg), interluekin-17–producing T-helper cells (Th17), and skin-homing memory T cells express CCR4 on their surface and migrate toward the chemokines CCL17 and CCL22.
CCR4, a C-C type chemokine receptor, has previously been focused on its biological function in immunopathogenesis of hematological tumors. To date, relatively little attention has been paid to the role of CCR4 in promoting metastasis of some solid tumors, including gastric cancer. Our group has shown that the lymphocyte-rich gastric cancers tend to be more frequently positive for CCR4, and found a novel role of CCR4 in tumor-induced immunosuppression, indicating various expression profiles of CCR4 in gastric cancer tissues and multifunctional roles of this molecule in gastric cancer progression.
