BackgroundSLAM family member 8(SLAMF8) is a single-pass type I membrane protein and contains 1 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain. SLAMF8 encodes a member of the CD2 family of cell surface proteins involved in lymphocyte activation. These proteins are characterized by Ig domains. The protein is expressed in lymphoid tissues, and studies of a similar protein in mouse suggest that it may function during B cell lineage commitment.
FormulationLyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of PBS,pH7.4.
