TREM2 Antibody (Cat No: AB21-10133)


TREM2 (Triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells 2) is a cell surface transmembrane glycoprotein with an immunoglobulin like extracellular domain and a cytoplasmic tail [1]. It is expressed in myeloid cells including dendritic cells, granulocytes, and tissue-specific macrophages such as osteoclasts.


In the brain, TREM2 is only expressed by microglia and in the central nervous system expression of TREM2 varies with higher expression in the hippocampus, spinal cord and white matter.


TREM2 plays a complex role in neuroinflammation with expression of TREM2 being upregulated in pathological conditions such as Parkinson's disease, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), stroke, traumatic brain injury and Alzheimer's Disease [2]. TREM2 has also been shown to have a role in potential mechanisms linking urban air pollution to Alzheimer's Disease through its involvement in the regulation of neuroinflammation [3].
