CLEC4F/CLECSF13 antibody in Mouse Liver by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-Fr).

CLEC4F/CLECSF13 in Mouse Liver.

CLEC4F/CLECSF13 was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of mouse liver using Goat Anti-Mouse CLEC4F/CLECSF13 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2784) at 5 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to Kupffer cells.

Background: CLEC4F/CLECSF13

CLEC4F (C-type lectin domain; family 4, member F; also known as the Kupffer cell receptor and fucose receptor) is an 80 kDa, type II transmembrane glycoprotein member of the C-type lectin superfamily (1‑3). Mature mouse CLEC4F consists of a 42 amino acid (aa) cytoplasmic domain, a 27 aa transmembrane segment, and a 479 aa extracellular domain (ECD) that contains an extended stalk region plus one carbohydrate recognition domain (4, 5). Within the ECD, mouse CLEC4F shares 48% and 79% aa sequence identity with human and rat CLEC4F, respectively. The stalk region of CLEC4F is a coiled coil domain that mediates homotrimer formation (6, 7). CLEC4F is expressed on Kupffer cells in the liver, but not on macrophages in other tissues (8). CLEC4F preferentially binds galactose and N‑acetylgalactosamine in a calcium-dependent manner (6, 9, 10). Its activity at neutral, but not at acidic pH, suggests a capacity to internalize and release ligands into the endosomal system (11).
