The monoclonal antibody 15-2 recognizes the mannose receptor (MR), also known as CD206, a member of the vertebrate C-type lectin family. The mannose receptor, is a pattern recognition receptor that is involved in both innate and adaptive immunity. The 175 kDa single-pass type I transmembrane receptor consists of 5 domains: an amino-terminal cysteine-rich region, a fibronectin type II repeat, a series of eight tandem lectin-like carbohydrate recognition domains (responsible for the recognition of mannose and fucose), a transmembrane domain, and an intracellular carboxy-terminal tail.
The structure is shared by the family of multi lectin mannose receptors: the phospholipase A2-receptor, DEC 205 and the novel C-type lectin receptor (mannose receptor X). The MR binds high-mannose structures on- a wide range of gram positive and gram negative bacteria, yeasts, parasites and mycobacteria. The MR has also been shown to bind and internalize tissue-type plasminogen activator.
MR's are present on monocytes and dendritic cells (DC) and are presumed to play a role in innate and adaptive immunity, the latter via processing by DC. The expression of MR as observed in immunohistology is present on tissue macrophages, dendritic cells, a subpopulation of endothelial cells, Kupffer cells and sperm cells. The expression of MR on monocytes increases during culture and can be enhanced by cytokines as IFN-gamma. Labeling of MR expressing monocytes/macrophages increases with prolonged incubation time probably due to internalization of the MR-antibody-complex. The monoclonal antibody 15-2 prevents binding of glycoproteins including t-PA to MR.
Detection of the MR with anti-MR monoclonal antibody 15-2 can substitute staining for mannose containing probes as labeled mannosylated BSA, a technique which is more cumbersome and less specific.

  • Application:
    F, FC, FS, W
  • Application Notes:
    F: Tissue sections were fixed in acetone/chloroform. Sections were preincubated with normal rabbit serum (Ref.3).
    FC: Antibody 15-2 stains the extracellular domain of MR.
    W: A non-reduced sample treatment and 6% SDS-Page was used. The band size is 175 kDa (Ref.1).
    FS: Antibody 15-2 functions as an inhibitor of binding. The antibody was functionally tested by preincubation of immobilized receptor with antibody. This prevented binding of t-PA to immobilized receptor. (Ref.1).
  • Positive Control:
    Macrophages (in coronary atherosclerotic plaque), placenta tissue, Hofbauer cells (fetal macrophages), liver tissue
  • Negative Control:
    Lymphocytes, Monocytes
  • Use:
    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.
