LANCE® and LANCE® (Lanthanide chelate excite) Ultra are homogeneous (no wash) TR-FRET (time-resolved fluorescence resonance energy transfer) technologies. One antibody of interest is labeled with a donor fluorophore (a LANCE Europium chelate) and the second antibody is labeled with an acceptor fluorophore [ULight™ dye]. Upon excitation at 320 or 340 nm, energy can be transferred from the donor Europium chelate to the acceptor fluorophore if sufficiently close for FRET (~10 nm). This results in the emission of light at 665 nm. Data are represented as ratiometric (665/615 nm X 10,000).
TREM2 is a transmembrane molecule expressed on myeloid cells. It acts as the receptor for an unknown ligand to activate myeloid cells such as dendritic cells, increasing phagocytic activity. Recently, TREM2 has been shown to be involved in neurodegenerative diseases such as ataxia, early dementia and Alzeimer’s disease. Elevated levels of TREM2 have been noted in cerebrospinal fluid as a response to Alzeimer’s disease.
