    • Rat anti Mouse TIM-2 antibody, clone RMT2-25 recognizes mouse Tim-2 (T-cell immunoglobulin mucin 2), a transmembrane glycoprotein and member of the immunoglobulin superfamily, expressed by activated lymphocytes, developmentally in the 8-cell embryo and blastocyst, and preferentially up-regulated in Th2 cells and down-regulated in Th1 cells.

      Tim-2 acts as a negative regulator of Th2 cells, and is implicated to play a critical role in the development of atopic disease and other Th2-biased immune responses. Tim-2 also acts as a receptor for Semaphorin 4A, a transmembrane protein expressed on dendritic cells and B cells, which plays a role in the guidance of axonal migration during neuronal development, and has been shown to enhance T cell activation.

      Studies using Rat anti Mouse TIM-2 antibody, clone RMT2-25 in mouse, have shown that signaling by Tim-2 can influence the proliferation and antibody production of B cells, during early phase collagen-induced arthritis (Kawamoto et al. 2011).

      Rat anti Mouse TIM-2 antibody, clone RMT2-25 has been shown to significantly enhance the proliferation of stimulated splenic B cells in vitro (Kawamoto et al. 2011).
