Detection of IL‑15 R alpha in C57BL/6 Mouse Bone Marrow-derived Dendritic Cells by Flow Cytometry. C57BL/6 mouse bone marrow cells differentiated into dendritic cells by treatment with 20 ng/mL Recombinant Mouse GM-CSF (Catalog # 415-ML) for 5 days, 1 µg/mL LPS on day 6 and harvested on day 7 were stained with Rat Anti-Mouse IL-15 Ra Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5511, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # MAB0061, open histogram), followed by Phycoerythrin-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0105B).

Background: IL-15R alpha
Interleukin 15 Receptor alpha (IL-15 R alpha ) is a high affinity receptor that specifically binds IL-15 with high affinity and associates as a heterotrimer with the IL-2 receptors beta and gamma subunits to initiate signal transduction. IL-15 R alpha is expressed on a wide variety of T cells and B cells as well as non‑lymphoid cells. IL‑15 R alpha is a 58-60 kDa protein that shares structural similarities to the IL-2 R alpha protein. IL-15 R alpha and IL-2 R alpha genes also share similar intron-exon organization and are closely linked on human chromosome 10p14-p15. Human IL-15 R alpha shares 45% amino acid (aa) homology with the mouse form of the receptor. Signaling of IL-15 can occur in one of three ways; through the heterotrimeric complex of IL-15 R alpha, IL-2 R beta and IL-2 R gamma c, through the heterodimeric complex of IL-2 receptors beta and gamma common, through a novel 60-65 kDa IL-15 RX subunit found on mast cells. The binding of IL-15 to IL-15 R alpha has been reported to antagonize the TNF‑ alpha ‑mediated apoptosis in fibroblasts by competing with TNFRI for TRAF2 binding.
