Detection of MDL‑1/CLEC5A in Human Blood Granulocytes by Flow Cytometry. Human peripheral blood granulocytes were stained with (A) MouseAnti-Human Siglec-3/CD33 APC-conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB1137A) and (B) Mouse Anti-Human MDL‑1/CLEC5A Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2384, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # MAB0041, open histogram), followed by Phycoerythrin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0102B).

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.
