Anti-CD21 Antibody (FITC) (Mouse Monoclonal antibody) General Information
Anti-CD21 Antibody (FITC)
Reacts with: Human
Recombinant Human CD21 Protein (Catalog#10811-H08H)
This antibody was produced from a hybridoma resulting from the fusion of a mouse myeloma with B cells obtained from a mouse immunized with purified, recombinant Human CD21 (rh CD21; Catalog#10811-H08H; P20023-1; Met1-Arg971) and conjugated with FITC under optimum conditions, the unreacted FITC was removed.
Monoclonal Mouse IgG1 Clone #02
Aqueous solution containing 0.5% BSA and 0.09% sodium azide
5 μl/Test, 0.1 mg/ml
This antibody is shipped as liquid solution at ambient temperature. Upon receipt, store it immediately at the temperature recommended below.
This antibody can be stored at 2℃-8℃ for twelve months without detectable loss of activity. Protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze ! Sodium azide is toxic to cells and should be disposed of properly. Flush with large volumes of water during disposal.
Flow cytometric analysis of Human CD21 expression on human whole blood lymphocytes. Cells were stained with FITC-conjugated anti-Human CD21 and APC-conjugated anti-Human CD19. The dot plots were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable lymphocytes.
The cluster of differentiation (CD) system is commonly used as cell markers in immunophynotyping. Different kinds of cells in the immune system can be identified through the surface CD molecules which associating with the immune function of the cell. There are more than 32 CD unique clusters and subclusters have been identified. Some of the CD molecules serve as receptors or ligands important to the cell through initiating a signal cascade which then alter the behavior of the cell. Some CD proteins do not take part in cell signal process but have other functions such as cell adhesion. CD21, also known as Complement component (3d / Epstein Barr virus) receptor 2 and CR2, is a member of the CD system and is a protein involved in complement system. CD21 is present on all mature B-cells and some T-cells and follicular dendritic cells. CD21 on mature B-cells form a complex called the B cell receptor complex with two other membrane proteins, CD19 and CD81. CD21 has a function in the complement system through serving as the cellular receper specific for ligands such as C3 and C4 which can be attached to foreign macromolecules in order to remove or uptake them. This results in B-cells having enhanced response to the antigen.
