TIM‑2 in Mouse Liver. TIM‑2 was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of mouse liver using Goat Anti-Mouse TIM‑2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1885) at 1.7 µg/mL for 1 hour at room temperature followed by incubation with the Anti-Goat IgG VisUCyte™ HRP Polymer Antibody (Catalog # VC004). Tissue was stained using DAB (brown) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to sinusoids.

TIM-2 is a type I membrane protein and is a member of the TIM protein family. This protein family is characterized by their conserved immunoglobulin and mucin domains, as well as by their expression on activated T cells. TIM-2 is a receptor for Sema 4A, which is expressed on dendritic cells and B cells. Sema 4A has been shown to enhance T cell activation.
