1P-727-T100 | Anti-Hu CD94 PE, 100 tests
CD94, also known as KLRD1 (killer cell lectin-like receptor D1), is a transmembrane glycoprotein of the C-type lectin family, which forms disulfide-linked heterodimers with NKG2A, B, C, E, H proteins, constituting functionally distinct receptors of NK cells and related cell types. CD94/NKG2A and CD94/NKG2B heterodimers serve as inhibitory, whereas CD94/NKG2C and CD94/NKG2E as activating receptors. The ligand for CD94/NKG2 complexes has been identified as HLA-E. Extent of CD94 expression on NK cell surface can be used to demonstrate their progress through the differentiation process.
