Measured by its ability to stimulate TNF-alpha secretion by human peripheral blood mononuclear cells. Bouchon, A. et al. (2001) Nature 410:1103 and Bouchon, A. et al. (2000) J. Immunology 164:4991. The ED50 for this effect is typically 2 - 6 μg/mL.
Ready to be labeled using established conjugation methods. No BSA or other carrier proteins that could interfere with conjugation.
Detection of Human TREM‑1 by Western Blot.
Western blot shows lysates of human granulocytes. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human TREM‑1 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1278) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF109). A specific band was detected for TREM‑1 at approximately 40 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

TREM-1 (Triggering Receptor Expressed on Myeloid cells) is a type I transmembrane protein having a single Ig-like domain. It associates with the adapter protein, DAP12, to deliver an activating signal. Several other TREM family members have been reported that are structurally similar but share less than 30% amino acid identity. TREM-1 is expressed on blood neutrophils and a subset of monocytes, and expression is up-regulated by bacterial LPS. The natural ligand for TREM-1 has not been identified. However, engagement of TREM-1 with an agonist monoclonal antibody leads to expression of IL-8, MCP-1, and TNF-alpha, suggesting that this receptor plays an important role in inflammatory responses. TREM-1 is expressed at high levels on neutrophils of patients with microbial sepsis and in mice with LPS-induced shock. Blockade of TREM-1 with a TREM-1/Fc fusion protein protected mice against LPS-induced shock. Human and mouse TREM-1 share approximately 42% amino acid sequence homology (1-3).
