DatasheetSpecific ReferencesReviewsRelated ProductsProtocols
CLEC4NProtein Product Information
Synonym:Nkcl, Clecsf10, Clec4n
Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the mouse CLEC4N (NP_064385.1) extracellular domain (Ile 44-Leu 209) was expressed, with a C-terminal polyhistidine tag.
Expressed Host:Human Cells
Form & Shipping:In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
CLEC4NProtein QC Testing
Purity:> 97 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Bio-Activity:Measured by its ability to agglutinate human red blood cells . Mouse CLEC4N at 25 μg/ml could agglutinate 1 % HRBC.
Endotoxin:< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Stability:Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃
Predicted N Terminal:Ile 44
Molecule Mass:The recombinant mouse CLEC4N comprises 177 amino acids with a predicted molecular mass of 20.9 kDa. As a result of glycosylation, it migrates as an approximately 23 kDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Formulation:Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4
1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose and mannitol are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA.
2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
CLEC4NProtein Usage Guide
Storage:Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Reconstitution:A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.

C-type lectin domain family 4 member N (CLEC4N), also known as Dectin-2, is a C-type lectin expressed by dendritic cells (DCs) and macrophages. Members of the C-type lectin domain (CTLD) superfamily are metazoan proteins functionally important in glycoprotein metabolism, mechanisms of multicellular integration and immunity. They share a common fold and are involved in a variety of functions, such as generalized defense mechanisms against foreign agents, discrimination between healthy and pathogen-infected cells, and endocytosis and blood coagulation. Genome-level studies on human, elegans and melanogaster demonstrated almost complete divergence among invertebrate and mammalian families of CTLD-containing proteins (CTLDcps). The vertebrate CTLDcp family was essentially formed early in vertebrate evolution and is completely different from the invertebrate families. The composition of the CTLDcp superfamily in fish and mammals suggests that large scale duplication events played an important role in the evolution of vertebrates. Dectin-2 is important in host defense against C. albicans by inducing Th17 cell differentiation. Dectin-2 constitutes a major fungal pattern recognition receptor (PRR) that can couple to the Syk-CARD9 innate signaling pathway to activate DCs and regulate adaptive immune responses to fungal infection.
