In IHC applications, antigen retrieval using a citrate buffer (pH 6.0) is recommended.
Percent identity with other species by BLAST analysis: Human, Gibbon, Marmoset, Mouse, Rat, Dog, Bat, Hamster, Panda, Pig (100%) Gorilla, Monkey, Rabbit (94%).
Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms exist for this gene. One of the isoforms is a membrane-bound protein with sequence similarity to the mouse mahogany protein, a receptor involved in controlling obesity. The other isoform is a secreted protein involved in the initial immune cell clustering during inflammatory responses that may regulate the chemotactic activity of chemokines.
