ARTC2, also known as ART2.2, is a 35 kD, GPI-anchored, and cell surface ADP-ribosyltransferase that is highly expressed by regulatory T cells (Tregs) and natural killer T (NKT) cells. ARTC2 is enzymatically active at 4°C. Through the ribosylation of the ion channel P2X7, ARTC2 mediates NAD+-induced cell death (NICD) and the proteolytic shedding of CD27 and CD62L. Blocking the activity ARTC2 with Treg-Protector™ improves the recovery of Tregs and NKT cells during their isolation from lymphatic and peripheral tissues.Product Details
- Antibody Type
- Expression vector encoding full length mouse ARTC2.
- 1 mg/mL S+16a Nanobody in PBS. Purity ≥ 95%, as determined by Coomassie stained SDS-PAGE. Less than 0.01 ng of endotoxin/µg of protein, as determined by the LAL method.
- Treg-Protector ™ is sterilized by filtration through a 0.22 µm membrane and contains no preservatives.
- 1.0 mg/ml
- Storage & Handling
- Store between 2°C and 8°C. Do not freeze. Keep sterile.
Block - Quality tested
- Recommended Usage
We recommend diluting Treg-Protector™ 1:4 with sterile PBS and administer 200 µL (50 µg) intravenously (i.v.) of diluted Treg-Protector™ per mouse. Euthanize the mouse and begin the cell preparation 15 - 60 minutes after the injection. Intraperitoneal (IP) injection is also effective at similar doses (validated by developer).
- Application Notes
Treg-Protector™ (S+16a Nanobody) is a recombinant llama VH Ig domain that binds to the ADP-ribosyltransferase ARTC2, which reversibly blocks its enzymatic activity and protects ARTC2+ cells from NAD+-induced cell death (NICD), which is caused by the release of NAD+ by cells that die during the preparation of primary lymphocytes. The S+16a nanobody has been demonstrated to protect a variety of cell types including Tregs, NKT cells, and tissue-resident memory T cells8.
