MA5-17956 targets TIM3 in FACS and IHC applications and shows reactivity with Mouse samples.
The MA5-17956 immunogen is mouse T cell clone AE7 cells.
TIM3 (Hepatitis A virus cellular receptor 2, HAVCR2, T-cell immunoglobulin, mucin-dmain containing-3) is a 281 amino acid long, Type-1 Th1- specific cell surface glycoprotein expressed on terminally differentiated CD4+Th1 and CD8+Tc1 cells. TIM3 consists of an IgV-like domain, a mucin-like domain in the extracellular region, and a conserved Tyrosine phosphorylation motif in the cytoplasmic region. TIM3 is involved in macrophage activation and induction of autoimmune diseases. Further, TIM3 down-regulates aggressive Th1-mediated immune responses and facilitates in the development of immune tolerance. Pathological significance of TIM3 has been attributed to Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), a Th-1 dependent autoimmune disease, and also enhances the severity of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis in mice.
