Overview

  • Product name
    Anti-CD21 antibody [1F8]
    See all CD21 primary antibodies
  • Description
    Mouse monoclonal [1F8] to CD21
  • Specificity
    This antibody reacts with CD21 antigen of MW 145 kDa, present on the surface of mature B cells. The antigen is present at high density on follicular dendritic cells. CD21 is involved in transmitting growth promoting signals to the interior of the B cell.

Target

  • Function
    Receptor for complement C3Dd, for the Epstein-Barr virus on human B-cells and T-cells and for HNRPU. Participates in B lymphocytes activation.
  • Tissue specificity
    Mature B-lymphocytes, T-lymphocytes, pharyngeal epithelial cells, astrocytes and follicular dendritic cells of the spleen.
  • Involvement in disease
    Genetic variations in CR2 are associated with susceptibility to systemic lupus erythematosus type 9 (SLEB9) [MIM:610927]. Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune disease with a complex genetic basis. SLE is an inflammatory, and often febrile multisystemic disorder of connective tissue characterized principally by involvement of the skin, joints, kidneys, and serosal membranes. It is thought to represent a failure of the regulatory mechanisms of the autoimmune system.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the receptors of complement activation (RCA) family.
    Contains 15 Sushi (CCP/SCR) domains.
  • Cellular localization
    Membrane.
