MDL-1 is an
approximately 40 kDa transmembrane glycoprotein belonging to the C-type lectin
superfamily (CLEC5A). MDL-1 is expressed on immature myeloid cells, monocytes,
macrophages, dendritic cells, neutrophils, NK cells, and osteocytes. It
contains a charged lysine in the transmembrane region that enables it to
associate with DAP12 and deliver an activating signal. MDL-1 mediates inflammatory responses during
autoimmune arthritis and upon binding to Dengue and Japanese encephalitis viruses.
The extracellular domain (ECD) of MDL-1 contains a juxtamembrane stalk region
and one C-type lectin domain. Within the ECD, human and mouse MDL-1 share 67%
amino acid sequence identity.
