Description: This F38-2E2 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD366, also known as T cell immunoglobulin and mucin domain-containing protein 3 (TIM3) or HAVCR2. This cell surface receptor is expressed on activated CD4+ T cell subsets (e.g. Th1, Th17, and Treg), CD8+ T cells, monocytes, dendritic cells, and mast cells. Due to alternative splicing, CD366 exists as membrane-bound and soluble forms. Galectin-9 has been identified as the ligand for CD366. In humans, this receptor negatively regulates CD4+ T cells, influencing the secretion of some Th1- and Th17-related cytokines. CD366 has also been implicated in tolerance, autoimmune disease (e.g. multiple sclerosis), and HIV infection.
Applications Reported: This F38-2E2 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This F38-2E2 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of stimulated normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 µL (0.06 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.

HAVCR2 is a 281 A.A Type-1 Th1- specific cell surface glycoprotein expressed on terminally differentiated CD4+Th1 and CD8+Tc1 cells. It consists of an IgV-like domain and a mucin-like domain in the extracellular region and a conserved Tyrosine phosphorylation motif in the cytoplasmic region. HAVCR2 plays an important role in the regulation of macrophage activation and induction of autoimmune diseases. It down-regulates aggressive Th1-mediated immune responses and facilitates in the development of immune tolerance. Pathological significance of HAVCR2 has been attributed to Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), a Th-1 dependent autoimmune disease.
