Description: The 6C2 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse Toll-like receptor 2 (TLR2). Mouse TLR2 is expressed by the myeloid lineage, including macrophage and dendritic cells in splenocytes and the RAW264.7 cell line. To date, at least twelve members of the Toll family have been identified in human and mouse. This family of type I transmembrane proteins is characterized by an extracellular domain with leucine-rich repeats and a cytoplasmic domain with homology to the type I IL-1 receptor. Two of these receptors, TLR2 and TLR4, are pattern recognition receptors and signaling molecules in response to bacterial lipoproteins and have been implicated in innate immunity and inflammation. TLR2 is expressed on the surface of cells and is responsible for distinguishing different pathogens.
Applications Reported: 6C2 has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. For optimal flow cytometry staining with this antibody, it is recommended that a directly conjugated 6C2 (FITC, PE, or Biotin) be used in combination with FcR blocking with anti-mouse CD16/CD32 (clone 93, cat.14-0161).
Applications Tested: The 6C2 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse splenocytes. This can be used at less than or equal to 1 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. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.

The TLR2 protein is a member of the Toll-like receptor (TLR) family which plays a fundamental role in pathogen recognition and activation of innate immunity. TLRs are highly conserved from Drosophila to humans and share structural and functional similarities. They recognize pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) that are expressed on infectious agents, and mediate the production of cytokines necessary for the development of effective immunity. The various TLRs exhibit different patterns of expression. This protein is expressed most abundantly in peripheral blood leukocytes, and mediates host response to Gram-positive bacteria and yeast via stimulation of NF-kappaB.
