>95%, by SDS-PAGE visualized with Silver Staining and quantitative densitometry by Coomassie® Blue Staining.
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the protein by the LAL method.
Measured by its binding ability in a functional ELISA. When
Human PD-1 Fc Chimera (Catalog # 1086-PD)
is immobilized at 1 μg/mL, 100 μL/well, the concentration of
Recombinant Cynomolgus Monkey PD‑L2/B7‑DC Fc Chimera
that produces 50% of the optimal binding
response is approximately 0.1-0.6 μg/mL.
When Recombinant Human PD-1 Fc Chimera (Catalog #1086-PD) is coated at 1 µg/mL (100 μL/well), Recombinant Cynomolgus MonkeyPD‑L2/B7‑DC Fc Chimera (Catalog # 9178-PL) binds with a typical ED50 of 0.1-0.6 μg/mL.
Programmed Death Ligand 2 (PD-L2), also known as B7-DC and butyrophilin-like protein, is a transmembrane member of the B7 family of proteins that provide signals for regulating T-cell activation and tolerance (1). Within the ECD, cynomolgous PD-L2 shares 71% and 96% aa sequence identity with mouse and human PD-L2, respectively (2, 3). PD-L2 is expressed on dendritic cells, subsets of activated CD4+ and CD8+ T cells, and memory B cells that differentiate into plasma cells (3-5). At inflammatory sites such as rheumatoid arthritis, allergen exposure, and virus infection, PD-L2 is up-regulated on synoviocytes, infiltrating macrophages, dendritic cells, and airway epithelial cells (6-10). PD-L2, along with B7-H1/PD-L1, binds to T cell PD-1 where it promotes IFN-gamma production and CD40 Ligand up-regulation while inhibiting IL-4 production (2, 3, 11, 12). In addition, PD-L2 binds to RGM-B on macrophages and alveolar epithelial cells, supporting respiratory immune tolerance (13). In asthma, PD-L2 suppresses IL-5 and IL-13 production, promotes IL-12 production by dendritic cells, and supports allergen-induced airway hyper-responsiveness and mucus production (8, 10).
