Rat Anti-Havcr1 Monoclonal Antibody
Tim-1 is highly expressed by activated CD4+ T cells, and acts as a positive/negative co-stimulatory molecule of T cell proliferation, cytokine production and tolerance abrogation, and is the receptor for Tim-4, expressed on APCs. Tim-1 expression is greater on Th2 than Th1 cells, and studies have shown that interaction between Tim-1 on Th2 cells and Tim-4 on dendritic cells (DCs), enhances Th2 cell function, and have implicated Tim-1 as a critical player in the development of atopic disease, and in particular airway hypersensitivity.
It specifically recognises mouse Tim-1 (T-cell immunoglobulin mucin 1), a cell surface glycoprotein and member of the immunoglobulin superfamily, which was first identified as the hepatitis A virus cellular receptor (HAVCR), and is highly expressed in the liver (isoform Tim-1a) and the kidneys (isoform Tim-1b).
Full-length mouse Tim-1-Ig, containing both the IgV and mucin domains of Tim-1.
