Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
TLR2 , Anti-TLR2 , CD282 , TIL4, Toll-like receptor 2
The Toll-like receptor (TLR) family in mammalian comprises a family of transmembrane proteins characterized by multiple copies of leucine rich repeats in the extracellular domain and IL-1 receptor motif in the cytoplasmic domain. Up-to-date, ten TLRs (TLR1-10) have been described. TLR2 is differentially expressed in human cells. CD14+ monocytes expressed the highest level of TLR2 followed by CD15+ granulocytes, and CD19+ B-cells. CD3+ T-cells and CD56+ NK cells did not express TLR2. The expression of TLR2 on different cell types is regulated by different immune response modifiers. For example, LPS, GM-CSF, IL-1, and IL-10 up regulate TLR2, whereas IL-4, IFN-gamma, and TNF down regulate TLR2 expression in monocytes.

Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, and 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes ~86 kDa TLR2 in Jurkat cell lysate. Reactivity to other species has not been tested. Blocking peptide (Cat.# 3552RBP-50) is available separately.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
