  • Function

    Calcium-dependent lectin displaying mannose-binding specificity. Induces the formation of Birbeck granules (BGs); is a potent regulator of membrane superimposition and zippering. Binds to sulfated as well as mannosylated glycans, keratan sulfate (KS) and beta-glucans. Facilitates uptake of antigens and is involved in the routing and/or processing of antigen for presentation to T cells. Major receptor on primary Langerhans cells for Candida species, Saccharomyces species, and Malassezia furfur. Protects against human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1) infection. Binds to high-mannose structures present on the envelope glycoprotein which is followed by subsequent targeting of the virus to the Birbeck granules leading to its rapid degradation.
  • Tissue specificity

    Exclusively expressed by Langerhans cells. Expressed in astrocytoma and malignant ependymoma, but not in normal brain tissues.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in CD207 are the cause of Birbeck granule deficiency (BIRGD) [MIM:613393]. It is a condition characterized by the absence of Birbeck granules in epidermal Langerhans cells. Despite the lack of Birbeck granules Langerhans cells are present in normal numbers and have normal morphologic characteristics and antigen-presenting capacity.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 1 C-type lectin domain.
  • Domain

    The C-type lectin domain mediates dual recognition of both sulfated and mannosylated glycans.
  • Cellular localization

    Membrane. Found in Birbeck granules (BGs), which are organelles consisting of superimposed and zippered membranes.

  • Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin-embedded human skin tissue labeling Langerin with ab192027 at 1/1000 dilution, followed by prediluted HRP Polymer for Rabbit/Mouse IgG. Counter stained with Hematoxylin. The negative control utilized PBS instead of primary antibody.

    Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with Tris/EDTA buffer pH 9.0 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
