Anti-MFG-E8 (Mouse) mAb Specifications

Alternative Names:P47, MP47, Mfgm, SED1, lactadherin
Background:Apoptotic cells are rapidly removed by phagocytosis to clear the living cells and tissues of intracellular materials being released from dying cells. Phagocytes recognize apoptotic cells through milk fat globule-EGF-factor 8 (MFG-E8). MFG-E8 is a secreted glycoprotein from thioglycollate-elicited macrophages and binds to phosphatidylserine exposed on the cell surface of apoptotic cells, then binds strongly to cells expressing avb3 integrin via its RGD (arginine-glycine-aspartate) motif. Thus, MFG-E8 is an important protein to mediate the engulfment of apoptotic cells by activated macrophages.
