Goat anti Human OCIL antibody
recognizes c-type lectin domain family 2 member D, also known as CLC2D, CLAX, and LLT1.
Originally described as an osteoblast-derived inhibitory factor of osteoclasts (Zhou et al. 2001
), OCIL is a member of the C-type lectin-like receptor superfamily (CTLR). OCIL is expressed on lymphocytes including B cells, NK cells, T cells, and activated dendritic cells. At the cell surface, OCIL acts as a ligand for the NKRP1A receptor (CD161), which contributes to differentiation of lymphocytes (Marrufo et al. 2018
). Interaction between OCIL and CD161 appears to actively participate in the anti-tumoral immune response, and have both been suggested as targets for immunotherapy strategies to enhance immune responses (Braud et al. 2018
). The suggestion of OCIL as a target for immunotherapy has been strengthened by the finding that it is expressed in a variety of healthy tissues and in immune-privileged sites (Llibre et al. 2016
