I am looking for a cell line known to express DC-SIGN on the surface for use as a positive control in FACS. Thanks
Due to the limited expression of DC-SIGN, most researchers use cell lines that have been transfected with DC-SIGN constructs for stable or transient transfection. Here are links to two such articles: link
It might be possible to obtain DC-SIGN expressing cell lines from institutions in your area that study AIDS.
If you have trouble accessing the articles, post your email address and I will send the pdfs.
