  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for Flow Cyt,ICC/IF or IP.
  • Target

    • Function

      Receptor for the Fc region of complexed or aggregated immunoglobulins gamma. Low affinity receptor. Involved in a variety of effector and regulatory functions such as phagocytosis of immune complexes and modulation of antibody production by B-cells. Binding to this receptor results in down-modulation of previous state of cell activation triggered via antigen receptors on B-cells (BCR), T-cells (TCR) or via another Fc receptor. Isoform IIB1 fails to mediate endocytosis or phagocytosis. Isoform IIB2 does not trigger phagocytosis.
    • Tissue specificity

      Is the most broadly distributed Fc-gamma-receptor. Expressed in monocyte, neutrophils, macrophages, basophils, eosinophils, Langerhans cells, B-cells, platelets cells and placenta (endothelial cells). Not detected in natural killer cells.
    • Involvement in disease

      Note=A chromosomal aberration involving FCGR2B is found in a follicular lymphoma. Translocation t(1;22)(q22;q11). The translocation leads to the hyperexpression of the receptor. This may play a role in the tumor progression.
    • Sequence similarities

      Contains 2 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains.
    • Domain

      Contains 1 copy of a cytoplasmic motif that is referred to as the immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitor motif (ITIM). This motif is involved in modulation of cellular responses. The phosphorylated ITIM motif can bind the SH2 domain of several SH2-containing phosphatases.
    • Cellular localization

      Cell membrane.

    Thank you for your enquiry and your interest in our products. This antibody is very specific to FcgammaR-IIB. It will not detect R-IIA or RIIC. Although this will detect all 3 isoforms for FcgammR-IIB (1, 2 and 3). I hope this will be useful for you.

    Thank you for your enquiry.

    I can confirm that ab33515 and ab45143antibodiesare sold as tissue culture supernatant. Unpurified antibodies, such as those sold as whole antiserum, ascites or tissue culture supernatant will not have a concentration stated on the datasheet. Antibody concentration is usually determined by protein assay, and serum / ascites / tissue culture supernatant will contain a lot of other proteins, which means the antibody quantification would not be accurate.

    I can confirm that for tissue culture supernatant, concentration of antibody is known to very between 1 - 3 mg/ml

    I am sorry we are not able to provide an exact concentration on this occasion, but hope this information will be helpful to you. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

    FC gamma RIIB is not predicted to recognize FC gamma RIIA or FC gamma RIIC. Sequence homology for both isoforms is 75% in 4 residues overlapping. However, it is not guaranteed without actual testing.
