The monoclonal antibody Kat5-18 recognizes T-cell immunoglobulin and mucin domain containing molecule (TIMD-4, also called TIM-4). TIMD-4 is a type I transmembrane protein belonging to the immunoglobulin superfamily, containing one Ig-like V-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain. TIMD-4 is expressed in Mac1+ cells in spleen, lymph nodes and fetal liver. TIMD-4 binds apoptotic cells by recognizing phosphatidylserine via its immunoglobulin domain. TIMD-4 in fibroblasts enhanced their ability to engulf apoptotic cells. TIMD-4 is involved in regulating T-cell proliferation and lymphotoxin signaling. TIMD-4 and TIMD-1 are phosphatidylserine receptors for the engulfment of apoptotic cells, and are also involved in intracellular signaling in which exosomes are involved.
The monoclonal antibody Kat5-18 blocks the engulfment of apoptotic cells by thymic macrophages.

Application Notes
FC: Cells were incubated on ice for 30 min with 1 μg/ml biotinylated Kat5-18 in 100 μl staining solution (PBS containing 2% FCS), followed by incubation with 2 μg/ml Allophycocyanin (APC)-Cyanine 7 (Cy7)-conjugated streptavidin and 2 μg/ml APCconjugated anti-CD11b. The cells were then stained with 0.5 μM SYTOX Blue (Ref.2).
FS: Antibody Kat5-18 blocks the engulfment of apoptotic cells by thymic macrophages (Ref.1).

Dilutions to be used depend on detection system applied. It is recommended that users test the reagent and determine their own optimal dilutions. The typical starting working dilution is 1:50.

  • New Human Complement Pathway Assays
    We are very proud of our newly developed human classical and alternative complement pathway assays. They are produced in response to a growing demand for quantitative investigation of complement inhibitors or regulators at lower sample dilutions. This development aims to address the issue of false negative results, enabling more accurate and reliable analysis of complement… Read more: New Human Complement Pathway Assays
  • Navigating the pitfalls in complement analysis
    Our colleague Erik Toonen shared his experience on how to analyze complement at the Complement-based Drug Development Summit in Boston in September 11-13th, 2023. He showed valuable insights on analyzing complements. For accurate complement analysis, it is important that not only the correct technique is used but also that pre-analytical sample handling is performed in… Read more: Navigating the pitfalls in complement analysis
  • NEW Human C3d ELISA
    We are happy to introduce our new ELISA (cat.# HK3017) designed to detect human C3d. What sets this assay apart is its utilization of a distinctive neo-epitope capture antibody that selectively targets a specific C3d region of the alpha chain, which is not available in other C3 variants. This way it specifically distinguishes C3d from native C3… Read more: NEW Human C3d ELISA
