Mouse CLEC9a Antibody Summary
Accession # EDK99924
Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.
CLEC9a in Mouse Spleen. CLEC9a was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of mouse spleen using Sheep Anti-Mouse CLEC9a Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF6776) at 1.7 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Sheep HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS019) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to dendritic cells.

CLEC9a (C-type lectin domain family member A; also DNGR-1) is a 50-52 kDa member of the group V C-type lectin domain containing family of receptors. In mouse, it is an activation receptor expressed on both CD8 alpha + CD24+ and plasmacytoid dendritic cells (DC). It assists in endocytosis but not phagocytosis, and appears to induce cytotoxic antitumor T cells by participating in class I MHC antigen presentation. CD8 alpha + DCs are believed to be particularly important for the disposal of dead cell material. Mouse CLEC9a is a 264 amino acid (aa) type II transmembrane glycoprotein. It contains a 35 aa cytoplasmic segment (aa 1-35) and a 208 aa extracellular region (aa 57-264) that possesses one C-type lectin domain (aa 144-256). CLEC9a forms disulfide-linked homodimers on the cell surface. There are multiple splice variants. The CLEC9a SwissProt entry (Q8BRU4) is 238 aa in length and shows a deletion of aa 106-131. Other isoforms contain either a 43 or a 67 aa substitution for aa 106-264, a Val substitution for 31-58, and a combination of the just mentioned Val substitution coupled to a deletion of aa 106-131. Both rat and human CLEC9a appear to be absent aa 106-131 found in full-length mouse CLEC9a. Taking this into account, over aa 57-264, mouse CLEC9a shares 50% and 70% aa identity with human and rat CLEC9a, respectively.
