Goat anti Human CD284 antibody recognizes the human Toll-like receptor 4, also known as CD284, hToll or TLR4. CD284 is an 839 amino acid ~96 kDa single pass type I transmembrane glycoprotein expressed by peripheral blood leucocytes, activated T cells, monocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells, granulocytes and endothelial cells. CD284 plays a primary role in the activation of innate immunity (UniProt: O00206).
Goat anti Human CD284 antibody recognizes an epitope within the N-terminal (NT) region of CD284, a highly conserved member of the toll-like receptor family which acts as a receptor for bacterial lipopolysaccharides (LPS) in co-operation with CD14 and MD2 (LY96), resulting in the activation of the MyD88-dependent and MyD88-independent (TRIF-dependent) signalling pathways and the production of inflammatory cytokines. LPS-activated CD284 can also induce dendritic cell maturation via TRIF-dependent signaling.
Goat anti Human CD284 antibody is reported to be suitable for use in immunocytochemistry on acetone fixed cells.
