Immobilized Recombinant Human DC-SIGN (Catalog # 9136-DC) supports the adhesion of ICAM-3 expressing CHO Chinese hamster ovary cells. The ED50 for this effect is typically 0.4-2 μg/mL.
Human Dendritic Cell-specific ICAM-3 Grabbing Non-integrin (DC-SIGN)/CD209 is a member of the C-type lectin family (1). The canonical DC-SIGN/CD209 isoform is a 46 kDa, 404 amino acid (aa) type II transmembrane protein (2). The extracellular region contains a Ca2+-dependent carbohydrate-binding lectin domain (2). Multiple human DC-SIGN/CD209 splice forms exist, generating both membrane-bound and soluble forms (3). DC-SIGN/CD209 is not well conserved between mouse and human, with the extracellular domain sharing only 63% aa identity. The DC-SIGN/CD209 lectin domain binds mannose oligosaccharides on pathogens including HIV as well as self glycoproteins including ICAMs (2, 4). DC-SIGN/CD209 binds to butyrophilin 2A1 and this interaction can be blocked by HIV pp120. DC-SIGN/CD209 is expressed on dendritic cells (DC) and inflammatory macrophages and contributes to antigen presentation (6, 7).
