Detection of TREM2 in RAW 264.7 Mouse Cell Line by Flow Cytometry. RAW 264.7 mouse monocyte/macrophage cell line was stained with Rat Anti-Human/Mouse TREM2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB17291R, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (MAB0061, open histogram), followed by Phycoerythrin-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG F(ab')2Secondary Antibody (F0105B). Staining was performed using our Staining Membrane-Associated Proteins protocol.
Detection of TREM2 in Human PBMC Monocytes by Flow Cytometry. Human PBMC monocytes were stained with (A) Rat Anti-Human/Mouse TREM2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB17291R) or (B) Rat IgG2B Isotype control antibody (MAB0061) followed by Allophycocyanin-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (F0113) and Rat anti-Mouse Integrin alpha M/CD11b PE-conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (FAB1124P). Staining was performed using our Staining Membrane-Associated Proteins protocol.

TREM2 (Triggering Receptor Expressed on Myeloid cells-2) is a 35 kDa molecular weight type I transmembrane member of the TREM family and Ig superfamily. Mature human TREM2 consists of a 156 amino acid (aa) extracellular domain (ECD) with one V-type Ig-like domain, a 21 aa transmembrane (TM) domain, and a 35 aa cytoplasmic tail. Within the ECD, human TREM2 shares 73% and 74% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat TREM2, respectively. Two closely related transcripts were reported in mouse and designated TREM2a and TREM2b. Soluble forms of the TREM2 ECD are generated by alternative splicing or proteolytic cleavage, and the cytoplasmic domain can be liberated by gamma-Secretase mediated intramembrane cleavage. It is a pattern recognition receptor that binds anionic ligands. A positively charged lysine within the transmembrane segment allows association with the signal adapter protein, DAP12 to deliver an activating signal that plays a role in both innate and adaptive immune responses, including inhibition of macrophage activation. TREM2 is expressed on macrophages, immature myeloid dendritic cells, osteoclasts, microglia, and adipocytes. It promotes the differentiation and function of osteoclasts, the production of inflammatory cytokines by adipocytes, insulin resistance, and the phagocytic clearance of bacteria. In the CNS, TREM2 binds to ApoE, ApoA1, and ApoB and mediates the clearance of apoptotic neurons, amyloid plaques, and cell debris following demyelination. TREM2 also interacts with and modifies signaling through Plexin A1 on dendritic cells and osteoclasts. Mutations in TREM2 or DAP12 are associated with the development of Alzheimer's disease and Nasu-Hakola disease (NHD/PLOSL) which is characterized by presenile dementia and bone cysts. Soluble TREM2 is elevated in cerebrospinal fluid of patients with active multiple sclerosis (MS), and TREM2 blockade exacerbates disease symptoms in the experimental EAE model of MS.
