1P-777-T100 | Anti-Hu CD112 PE, 100 tests
CD112, also known as nectin-2, is a transmembrane glycoprotein involved in organization of adherens junctions. It also serves as a target molecule for entry of certain strains of herpes simplex virus (HSV) and pseudorabies virus (PRV). It is homologous to CD155, which serves as a target molecule for polio virus. CD112 seems to play a role in neural tube formation, with N-cadherin. Inside the cell, CD112 is connected with actin cytoskeleton through afadin. Variations in the CD112 gene have been associated with differences in the severity of multiple sclerosis. Alternate transcriptional splice variants, encoding different isoforms, have been characterized.
