B-hCXCR5 mice

March 1, 2021

C-X-C chemokine receptor type 5 (CXC-R5) also known as CD185 (cluster of differentiation 185) or Burkitt lymphoma receptor 1 (BLR1) is a G protein-coupled seven transmembrane receptor for chemokine CXCL13 (also known as BLC) and belongs to the CXC chemokine receptor family. CXCR5 is specifically expressed in Burkitt’s lymphoma and lymphatic tissues, such as follicles […]

B-hPSGL-1 mice

February 25, 2021

P-selectin glycoprotein ligand-1 (PSGL-1) as a selectin and chemokine-binding adhesion molecule was described as a major immunomodulatory molecule during viral infection. PSGL-1 also plays a crucial role in T-cell homeostasis by binding to lymphoid chemokines, and can induce tolerance by enhancing the functions of regulatory T cells. Recent findings PSGL-1 was originally described as a […]

B-hSIRPA/hCD47,Prkdc/Il2rg KO mice

February 19, 2021

Signal regulatory protein α (SIRPα) is a transmembrane protein with an extracellular region comprising three Ig-like domains and a cytoplasmic region containing immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibition motifs which mediate binding of the protein tyrosine phosphatases SHP1 and SHP2. SIRPα is especially abundant in myeloid cells such as macrophages and dendritic cells(DC), whereas it is expressed at […]

B-hPD-1/hPD-L1/hIL2RA mice

February 19, 2021

PD-1 (Programmed death-1) is mainly expressed on the surface of T cells and primary B cells. The two PD-1 ligands, PD-L1 and PD-L2, are widely expressed on antigen-presenting cells (APCs). PD-L1 expression is favorable for tumorigenesis and growth, for induction of anti-tumor T cell apoptosis, and for escaping responses by the immune system. Inhibition of […]

B-hCSF1/hCSF1R mice

February 19, 2021

The colony stimulating factor 1 (CSF1), also known as macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF), is a secreted cytokine which causes hematopoietic stem cells to differentiate into macrophages or other related cell types. M-CSF affects macrophages and monocytes in several ways, including stimulating increased phagocytic and chemotactic activity, and increased tumour cell cytotoxicity.The role of M-CSF is […]

B-hCD5 mice

February 19, 2021

CD5 is a cluster of differentiation, also known as T1 and Leu-1, which is expressed on the surface of thymocytes, T cells (various species) and in a subset of murine B cells known as B-1a. CD5 is a member of the SRCR family, the extracellular region of CD5 is composed of 3 type B SRCR […]

B-hRAGE mice

February 19, 2021

RAGE (receptor for advanced glycation endproducts), also called AGER, is a transmembrane receptor of the immunoglobulin super family. Its name comes from its ability to bind advanced glycation endproducts (AGE), which include chiefly glycoproteins, the glycans of which have been modified non-enzymatically through the Maillard reaction. In view of its inflammatory function in innate immunity […]

B-hRANKL mice

February 19, 2021

RANKL encodes a member of the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) cytokine family which is a ligand for osteoprotegerin and functions as a key factor for osteoclast differentiation and activation. This protein was shown to be a dentritic cell survival factor and is involved in the regulation of T cell-dependent immune response. T cell activation was […]

B-hCSF2RB mice

February 19, 2021

CSF2RB (also known as cytokine receptor common subunit beta)([βc]/CD131) family of cytokines comprises granulocyte macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF), interleukin (IL)-3, and IL-5, all of which use βc as their key signaling receptor subunit. This is a prototypic signaling subunit-sharing cytokine family that has unveiled many biological paradigms and structural principles applicable to the IL-2, IL-4, […]

B-hCCR5 mice

February 19, 2021

C-C chemokine receptor type 5, also known as CCR5 or CD195, is a protein on the surface of white blood cells that is involved in the immune system as it acts as a receptor for chemokines. The CCR5 protein belongs to the beta chemokine receptors family of integral membrane proteins. It is a G protein–coupled receptor which functions as a chemokine receptor in the CC chemokine group. […]
