Recombinant Human LILRA6/CD85b/ILT8 Protein, CF Summary
Gly24-Asn447, with a C-terminal 6-His tag
CF stands for Carrier Free (CF). We typically add Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a carrier protein to our recombinant proteins. Adding a carrier protein enhances protein stability, increases shelf-life, and allows the recombinant protein to be stored at a more dilute concentration. The carrier free version does not contain BSA.
In general, we advise purchasing the recombinant protein with BSA for use in cell or tissue culture, or as an ELISA standard. In contrast, the carrier free protein is recommended for applications, in which the presence of BSA could interfere.

When Recombinant Human LILRA6/CD85b/ILT8 is coated onto a microplate at 2 µg/mL, Recombinant Human Angiopoietin-like Protein 7 (Catalog # 914-AN) binds with a typical ED50 of 0.1-0.6 µg/mL.
LILRA6, also known as ILT8 and CD85b, is a transmembrane molecule that belongs to the LILR family of immune regulatory proteins (1, 2). Among family members, LILRA6 is most closely related to LILRB3/CD85a/ILT5; these proteins share 94% amino acid (aa) sequence identity in their extracellular domains (ECD). Mature human LILRA6 consists of a 424 aa ECD with two immunoglobulin-like domains, a 21 aa transmembrane segment, and a 13 aa cytoplasmic domain (3). It contains a positively charged arginine residue in the transmembrane segment which may mediate association with the signaling protein Fc epsilon RI gamma. Alternative splicing generates a short isoform that is truncated near the middle of the ECD. LILRA6 is highly polymorphic, and its gene is found in variably copy numbers (4, 5). LILRA6 is primarily expressed on monocytes (4). R&D Systems in-house testing indicates that LILRA6 binds to Angiopoietin-like 7, consistent with the demonstrated functional interactions between other members of these protein families (6).
