|Full Name||CD36 molecule (thrombospondin receptor)|
|Product Description||FITC-conjugated Mouse Monoclonal antibody [TR9] to CD36|
|Background||CD36 (fatty acid translocase, FAT) is an 88 kDa ditopic glycosylated protein that belongs to the class B family of scavenger receptors. CD36 is expressed by most resting marginal zone B cells but not by follicular and B1 B cells, and it is rapidly induced on Follicular B cells in vitro upon TLR and CD40 stimulation. CD36 does not affect the development of B cells, but modulates both primary and secondary antibody response. Similarly to glucose transporter GLUT4, CD36 is translocated from intracellular pools to the plasma membrane following cell stimulation by insulin. In mouse, CD36 is responsible for gustatory perception of long-chain fatty acids.Entrez Gene: 7q11.2|
|Synonyms||FAT, GP3B, GP4, GPIV, PASIV, SCARB3, GPIIIb|
|Specificity||The antibody TR9 reacts with CD36 (GPIIIb), a 85 kDa integral membrane glycoprotein expressed on platelets, macrophages, endothelial cells, early erythroid cells and megakaryocytes. The antibody TR9 cross-blocks binding of FITC-labeled standard antibody OKM5.|
Anti-CD36 antibodies inhibit adhesive functions (e.g. adherence of infected erythrocytes to target cells).
