|The TIM-1 havcr1 (Catalog #MBS224498) is an Antibody produced from Rat and is intended for research purposes only. The product is available for immediate purchase. MyBioSource\'s TIM-1 can be used in a range of immunoassay formats including, but not limited to, Flow cytometry (FC/FACS).
Flow Cytometry: Use 10ul of the suggested working dilution to label 1x106 cells in 100ul. The Fc region of monoclonal antibodies may bind non-specifically to cells expressing low affinity Fc receptors. This may be reduced by using SeroBlock FcR.
Flow Cytometry: Minimum Dilution: Neat; Maximum Dilution: 1/10. Researchers should empirically determine the suitability of the TIM-1 havcr1 for an application not listed in the data sheet. Researchers commonly develop new applications and it is an integral, important part of the investigative research process.
The TIM-1 havcr1 product has the following accession number(s) (GI #262231823) (NCBI Accession #NP_001160103.1) (Uniprot Accession #Q5QNS5). Researchers may be interested in using Bioinformatics databases such as those available at The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) website for more information about accession numbers and the proteins they represent. Even researchers unfamiliar with bioinformatics databases will find the NCBI databases to be quite user friendly and useful.

Please refer to the product datasheet for known applications of a given antibody. We\'ve tested the RAT ANTI MOUSE TIM-1:FITC with the following immunoassay(s):
Testing Data #1 (TIM-1 transfected NRK cells stained with Rat anti Mouse TIM-1 (MBS224461))
Testing Data #2 (TIM-1 transfected NRK cells stained with Rat anti Mouse TIM-1:FITC (MBS224498))
Rat anti Mouse TIM-1 antibody, clone MBS239187-10 recognizes mouse Tim-1 (T-cell immunoglobulin mucin 1), a cell surface glycoprotein and member of the immunoglobulin superfamily, which was first identified as the hepatitis A virus cellular receptor (HAVCR), and is highly expressed in the liver (isoform Tim-1a) and the kidneys (isoform Tim-1b). Tim-1 is highly expressed by activated CD4+ T cells, and acts as a positive/negative co-stimulatory molecule of T cell proliferation, cytokine production and tolerance abrogation, and is the receptor for Tim-4, expressed on APCs. Tim-1 expression is greater on Th2 than Th1 cells, and studies have shown that interaction between Tim-1 on Th2 cells and Tim-4 on dendritic cells (DCs), enhances Th2 cell function, and have implicated Tim-1 as a critical player in the development of atopic disease, and in particular airway hypersensitivity. Polymorphic forms of Tim-1 are associated with increased susceptibility to asthma, eczema and Rheumatoid arthritis. Rat anti Mouse TIM-1 antibody, clone MBS239187-10 has been shown to promote Th2 responses, and inhibit antigen-specific T cell proliferation, in contrast to the agonistic function of many Tim-1 antibodies (Xiao et al. 2007). Rat anti Mouse TIM-1 antibody, clone MBS239187-10 has been shown to reduce the severity of EAE (experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis) and delay disease onset, in mice studies (Xiao et al. 2007).
