Detection of LAIR2 in Jurkat Human Cell Line by Flow Cytometry. Jurkat human acute T cell leukemia cell line was stained with Mouse Anti-Human LAIR2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2665, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # MAB0041, open histogram), followed by Allophycocyanin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG F(ab')2 Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0101B). To facilitate intracellular staining, cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with saponin.

LAIR2 (leukocyte-associated Ig-like receptor-2; CD306) is a secreted, 131 amino acid (aa) protein that contains one Ig-like C2 type domain, making it a member of the Ig superfamily. When compared to LAIR1, its transmembrane counterpart, it shares 83% aa identity across the signal sequence and extracellular domains (1‑3). Although one is secreted and one is membrane-bound, the two LAIR proteins are thought to have arisen from a common gene ancestor and appear to share similar adhesion profiles. This suggests that LAIR2 may compete with LAIR1 for ligand binding (3, 4). A 114 aa alternate splice form of LAIR2 is truncated at the C terminus, but retains the entire Ig domain (1‑3). The expression profile of these splice forms, and the presence of orthologs in other species, have not been reported.
