Recombinant Mouse Dectin-2/CLEC6A Protein, CF
Recombinant Mouse Dectin-2/CLEC6A Protein, CF Summary
Phe43-Leu209, with an N-terminal 7-His tag and Ala
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.

Dectin-2 alpha, also known as CLEC6A, CLECSF10, and NKCL, belongs to the C-type lectin family of transmembrane immune regulatory glycoproteins. Dectin-2 alpha, CLEC4A/DCIR, CLEC4B/DCAR, CLEC4C/DLEC, CLEC4D/MCL, and CLEC4E/mincle constitute a subgroup of these molecules that exhibit approximately 40% amino acid (aa) sequence identity in their extracellular domains (ECD) and have a conserved cysteine spacing in their carbohydrate recognition domains (CRD) (1, 2). Mature mouse Dectin-2 alpha consists of a short cytoplasmic tail, a transmembrane segment, and an ECD with a stalk region and one CRD (3, 4). Alternate splicing leads to partial deletion of the transmembrane segment and stalk ( beta isoform) or a portion of the CRD ( gamma isoform) (4). The full length Dectin-2 alpha isoform is a 27 kDa molecule that is primarily expressed on the surface of tissue macrophages and their precursors (3 - 6). The CRD of Dectin-2 alpha contains an EPN motif which is characteristic of calcium-dependent mannose-binding lectins. Dectin-2 alpha selectively interacts with high mannose structures in the Man9GlcNAc2 configuration (7). It mediates the recognition of a variety of microorganisms, particularly the filamentous forms of yeast and fungii (7, 8). The short cytoplasmic tail does not contain signaling motifs but mediates association with the ITAM-containing Fc receptor gamma subunit in macrophages (8). Ligation of Dectin-2 alpha induces tyrosine phosphorylation of the gamma subunit, activation of NF kappa B, and enhanced release of TNF-alpha and IL-1ra (8). Macrophage Dectin-2 alpha is upregulated in vivo by inflammatory stimuli and UV-B irradiation (6). It mediates the breaking of UV-induced tolerance by interacting with CD4+CD25+ regulatory T cells which then induce dendritic cells to release IL-4, IL-10, and TGF-beta (9). Within the ECD, mouse Dectin-2 alpha shares 71% aa sequence identity with human and bovine Dectin-2.
