CD156a (ADAM8) antibodies, human

Clone: REA331 | Dilution: 1:11
Clone REA331 recognizes the human CD156a antigen, a single-pass type I transmembrane protein which is also known as disintegrin or metalloproteinase domain-containing protein 8 (ADAM8). The ADAM family members are membrane-anchored proteins with wide ranging functions, including proteolytic cleavage of cell surface molecules, cell fusion, cell adhesion, and intracellular signaling. CD156a is expressed mainly in cells of the immune system, such as monocytes, neutrophils, eosinophils, dendritic cells, and B cells. As for most ADAM family members, CD156a is involved in ectodomain shedding of membrane proteins like CD23 and L-selectin and is linked to allergic inflammation and neurodegeneration.
Additional information: Clone REA331 displays negligible binding to Fc receptors.
