TREM2 in RAW 264.7 Mouse Cell Line. TREM2 was detected in immersion fixed RAW 264.7 mouse monocyte/macrophage cell line using Sheep Anti-Mouse TREM2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1729) at 1.7 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL010) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm.

Mouse TREM2 ELISA Standard Curve. Recombinant Mouse TREM2 protein was serially diluted 2-fold and captured by Sheep Anti-Mouse TREM2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1729) coated on a Clear Polystyrene Microplate (Catalog # DY990). Sheep Anti-Mouse TREM2 Biotinylated Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # BAF1729) was incubated with the protein captured on the plate. Detection of the standard curve was achieved by incubating Streptavidin-HRP (Catalog # DY998) followed by Substrate Solution (Catalog # DY999) and stopping the enzymatic reaction with Stop Solution (Catalog # DY994).

Background: TREM2

TREM2 (Triggering Receptor Expressed by Myeloid cells) is an Ig superfamily cell surface receptor that activates a number of myeloid cell types (1). It is a member of a small gene family located on human chromosome 6p21 and mouse chromosome 17 in a region linked to the MHC (2). A single human TREM2 gene has been described, however, two closely related orthologs were reported in mouse (3). The proteins differ by only three amino acids and were designated TREM2a and TREM2b. TREM2 is type I transmembrane protein consisting of a single extracellular immunoglobulin (V-like) domain, a transmembrane domain with a positively charged lysine residue, and a short cytoplasmic tail (1). It associates with the signal adapter protein, DAP12, for signaling and function. DAP12 has a cytoplasmic ITAM that is phosphorylated upon ligand binding leading to the subsequent activation of cytoplasmic tyrosine kinases. TREM2 is expressed by immature monocyte-derived dendritic cells (DC), and expression is down-regulated upon activation of DC by microbial products and costimulatory signals (4). Ligation of TREM2 on immature DC with anti-TREM2 antibodies results in partial DC activation and the up-regulation of CCR7 and some co-stimulatory molecules. A role for TREM2 in the functioning of osteoclasts and microglia is suggested by the discovery that homozygous loss-of-function mutations in either TREM2 or DAP12 result in Nasu-Hakola disease characterized by a combination of presenile demetia and bone cysts (5). In vitro studies indicate that the differentiation of myeloid precursors into osteoclasts is dramatically impaired in TREM2 deficient individuals (6).
