Description: The 424LTS monoclonal antibody reacts with and blocks IL-17A binding to human interleukin 17 receptor A (IL-17RA, IL-17R). IL-17RA is a type I membrane protein of approximately 96 kDa (866 amino acids) and is involved in inflammatory responses to IL-17A, IL-17F and IL-17AF heterodimer. It forms heterodimeric complexes with several other members of its receptor family, including IL-17RC for IL-17A and IL-17F signaling and IL-17RC for IL-17E (IL-25) signaling. IL-17RA is ubiquitously expressed, but in leukocytes its expression is elevated on granulocytes and monocytes.
Applications Reported: This 424LTS antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This 424LTS antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 µL (0.25 µg) per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test.
Excitation: 633-647 nm; Emission: 660 nm; Laser: Red Laser.
Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
Interleukin 17A (IL-17A) is a proinflammatory cytokine secreted by activated T-lymphocytes. It is a potent inducer of the maturation of CD34-positive hematopoietic precursors into neutrophils. IL-17RA is a ubiquitous type I membrane glycoprotein that binds with low affinity to IL-17A and IL-17F. IL-17A and its receptor play a pathogenic role in many inflammatory and autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. Defects in IL-17RA are the cause of familial candidiasis type 5 (CANDF5) which is a rare disorder with altered immune responses and impaired clearance of fungal infections.
