ProMab Biotechnologies Custom DC Migration Assays

DCs are central players of the immune system and their migration into secondary lymphoid organs and tissues plays a crucial role in the initiation of innate and adaptive immunity. Immature DCs with strong migration ability are activated by the hapten-protein complex and differentiated from antigen-capture and processing cells into potent immunostimulatory DCs to present antigen effectively to effector T-cells. Most DC driven responses require their migration to a certain target destination to promote immunity.

Migration is truly at the heart of dendritic cells biology and most of the migration events are controlled by specific molecular guidance cues, including chemokine-chemokine receptor system (e.g. CCR7, CCL19 and CCL21) and some factors interacting with the DCs cytoskeleton.

ProMab provides a customized, standardized, reliable and DCs migration assay services covering all aspects of DC migration study, such as maturation and mobilization of tissue-resident DCs, intranodal migration and positioning of DCs and the migration in the skin, intestines, lung, central nervous system (CNS), atherosclerosis and inflammatory diseases, etc.
