KLRK1 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 168 amino acids (73-216 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 19.2kDa. KLRK1 is fused to a 24 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Killer Cell lectin-Like Receptor Subfamily K, Member 1 (KLRK1) is an activating receptor which has recently generated considerable interest. The most fascinating of these, are a couple of closely related proteins known as MICA and MICB. These are cell-surface molecules distantly related to MHC class I proteins, and their genes have elements of heat shock promoters. Thus, MICA and MICB are expressed in the course of cell stress and are up-regulated in tumor cells and during viral infections. This receptor-ligand combination has a crucial role in the immune response to various pathologies.
