|Synonyms||TIGIT; VSIG9; VSTM3; WUCAM; T Cell Immunoreceptor with Ig and ITIM Domains|
|Description||T-cell immunoreceptor with Ig and ITIM domains (TIGIT) is also known as V-set and immunoglobulin domain-containing protein 9 (VSIG9), V-set and transmembrane domain-containing protein 3 (VSTM3). It belongs to single-pass type I membrane protein containing an immunoglobulin variable domain, a transmembrane domain and an immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motif (ITIM). It binds with high affinity to the poliovirus receptor (PVR) which causes increased secretion of IL10 and decreased secretion of IL12B and suppresses T-cell activation by promoting the generation of mature immunoregulatory dendritic cells. TIGIT is expressed at low levels on peripheral memory and regulatory CD4+ T-cells and NK cells and is up-regulated following activation of these cells.
Recombinant Human TIGIT Fc Chimera produced in HEK293 cells is a polypeptide chain containing 352 amino acids with the C-termimal human IgG1 Fc fragment. A fully biologically active molecule, rhTIGIT has a molecular mass of 50-55 kDa, analyzed by reducing SDS-PAGE and is obtained by chromatographic techniques at GenScript.
|Biological Activity||Immobilized CD155 Fc, human (Z03435) at 5 μg/mL (100μL/well) can bind Biotin-TIGIT Fc, Human with a linear range of 6.10-48.83ng/mL when detected by Streptavidin-HRP.|
