||DNAX accessory molecule 1 (DNAM-1), is a tyrosine-phosphorylated signal-transducing molecule belonging to the immunoglobulin superfamily and participates in primary adhesion during cytotoxic T lymphocyte-mediated cytotoxicity. DNAM-1 is a functional glycoprotein expressed on immune cells, such as natural killer and T-cells. It is activated upon interaction with its biological ligands, the poliovirus receptor and nectin-2. Signaling cascades involving stimulation of DNAM-1 lead to various biological responses, including target cell lysis and immune cell activation. DNAM-1 appears to be an integral molecule in immune responses in cancer, allergic inflammatory disorders and autoimmune diseases.
||The predicted molecular weight of Recombinant Human DNAM-1 is Mr 53 kDa. However, the actual molecular weight as observed by migration on SDS Page is Mr 90 kDa.
