C9B7W BE0174 InVivoMab Antibodies
$350 - 3685

The C9B7W monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse LAG-3 also known as CD223. LAG-3 is a 70 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein encoded by the Lag3 gene that belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily. LAG-3 is expressed by activated T lymphocytes, NK cells, and T regulatory cells. LAG-3’s main ligand is MHC class II which it binds to with a higher affinity than even CD4 does. Upon binding LAG-3 is thought to play similar roles as CTLA-4 and PD-1 including downregulation of TCR signaling and inhibition of CD4-dependent T cell function. LAG-3 has also been demonstrated to contribute to the suppressor function of T regulatory cells. In contrast to inhibition, LAG-3 has been shown to promotes immune responses by activating antigen-presenting cells. The C9B7W antibody has been reported to block the function of murine LAG-3 in vivo and in vitro but studies suggest that the antibody does not block binding of LAG-3 to MHC class II.
