Immunogen: Recombinant human TIGIT
INFORMATION: Human TIGIT (T cell immunoreceptor with Ig and ITIM domains) is a co inhibitory receptor expressed by activated T cells, memory T cells, Treg cells and NK cells. It binds to CD155(PVR) and less avidly to CD112(PVRL2). Blockade of the TIGIT/CD155 axis shows promise in restoring T cell function in pancreatic cancer(2).
Specificity: Antibody ANCTG6 binds to receptors on a sub set of human peripheral blood lymphoid cells, as well as to recombinant TIGIT in EIA.
