High impact information on Clec5a

  • Myeloid DAP12-associating lectin (MDL)-1 is a cell surface receptor involved in the activation of myeloid cells [1].
  • In contrast, expression of both MDL-1 and TREM-1 was markedly induced by mycobacterial infection and such induction was inhibited by concurrent exposure to IFN-gamma [2].
  • Porcine MDL-1 contains a conserved lysine in the transmembrane domain [3].
  • There are six putative N-linked glycosylation sites in the MDL-1 long form [3].
  • In this study, we report the molecular cloning of two isoforms of porcine MDL-1 cDNA from pulmonary alveolar macrophages [3].
