Detects mouse LRRC32/GARP in direct ELISAs. In direct ELISAs, approximately 50% cross-reactivity
with recombinant human (rh) LRRC32 is observed and no cross-reactivity with
rhLRRC3, rhLRRC4, or rhNGL-3/LRRC4B is observed.

Detection of LRRC-32 in Mouse Splenocytes by Flow Cytometry. Mouse splenocytes were stimulated with 10 μL/mL anti-CD3/anti-CD28, Recombinant Mouse IL-2 (Catalog # 402-ML), and Human TGF-beta 1 (Catalog # 100-B) for 3 days to induce T regulatory cells (Tregs). Tregs were then stained with Rat Anti-Mouse CD4 Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB554G), Phycoerythrin-conjugated Anti-FoxP3, and either (A) Rat Anti-Mouse LRRC32/GARP Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB62291) or (B) Rat IgG1 Isotype Control (Catalog # MAB005) followed by Allophycocyanin-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0113). Dot plots are gated on CD4+ T cells.

Leucine-rich repeat protein 32 (LRRC32), also known as GARP (glycoprotein A repetitions predominant), is an 80 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein (1). Mature mouse LRRC32 consists of a 608 amino acid (aa) extracellular domain (ECD) that contains 22 leucine-rich repeats, a 21 aa transmembrane segment, and a 14 aa cytoplasmic domain (2-4). Within the ECD, mouse LRRC32 shares 80 and 94% aa sequence identity with human and rat LRRC32, respectively. LRRC32 is widely expressed during embryogenesis and on adult platelets (4, 5). Among T cells, it is selectively expressed on activated FOXP3+ regulatory T cells (Treg) (6-10). LRRC32 expression promotes the acquisition of a Treg phenotype including reduced cellular proliferation, reduced cytokine secretion, and the capacity to suppress the proliferation of naïve T cells (6-8). LRRC32 binds directly to the TGF-beta latency associated peptide (LAP) and tethers latent TGF-beta on the surface of activated Treg cells (9, 10). The presentation of TGF-beta on Tregs contributes to their ability to suppress naïve T cell proliferation (11).
