Goat anti Human CD274 antibody recognizes an epitope within the C-terminal (CT) region of human CD274, otherwise known as PD-L1, a cell surface glycoprotein and member of the B7 family of co-stimulatory molecules, constitutively expressed on macrophages and dendritic cells, and inducible on activated T-cells, B-cells, endothelial cells and epithelial cells, in response to interferons.
CD274 acts as both a co-stimulatory and co-inhibitory molecule, co-stimulating early T cell priming, differentiation and IL-10 production, and inhibiting T cell proliferation and TCR-mediated activation of IL-2 production, through interaction with the receptor CD279/PD-1.
Purified IgG - liquid
Antiserum to human CD274 (CT) was raised by repeated immunisation of goats with highly purified antigen. Purified IgG was prepared by affinity chromatography.
0.02% Sodium Azide (NaN3) 0.5% Bovine Serum Albumin
Synthetic peptide sequence CKKQSDTHLEET from the C-Terminal region of CD274 (NP_054862.1).
