  • Function

    Acts as an endocytic receptor to direct captured antigens from the extracellular space to a specialized antigen-processing compartment (By similarity). Causes reduced proliferation of B-lymphocytes.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed in spleen, thymus, colon and peripheral blood lymphocytes. Detected in myeloid and B lymphoid cell lines. Isoform 2 and isoform 3 are expressed in malignant Hodgkin lymphoma cells called Hodgkin and Reed-Sternberg (HRS) cells.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 10 C-type lectin domains.
    Contains 1 fibronectin type-II domain.
    Contains 1 ricin B-type lectin domain.

Thank you for contacting us yesterday in regards to the anti-LY75 antibody (ab124897).

I now have some further information to share with you. The antibody has been tested in ICC ofRamos cells and the protocol used is attached to this email. I am sorry but I do not have an image of the results obtained to share with you.

As we discussed over the phone, ab124897 has been raised against the intracellular domain of the LY75 protein. I have had a look through the other antibodies we have against this target and we only have one which I can be sure would bind to the extracellular domain. This is the antibody ab93851 which has been raised against a synthetic peptide taken from within the residues 150-250 of human LY75. The other antibodies we have may detect the extracellular domain but as they are mostly raised against tissue homogonate we could not be sure of this.

Ab93851 is a rabbit polyclonal which has currently only been used in Western blotting of human samples. This does not mean that it would not work in your experiments, simply that we have not tried it ourselves and would therefore not be able to guarantee it. If you would be interested, you would qualify for the testing discount if you wanted to try this antibody.

This offer means that if you purchase ab93851 as normal, test the antibody with your samples in ICC and let us know of the results through an Abreview (no matter whether positive or negative) you would be eligible for a free primary antibody of your choice from our catalogue (or the equivalent price of ab93851 off any product). More information on this offer can be found here:

Please note that the antibody to be tested must be purchased, tested, the Abreview submitted and the free product claimed within a 4 month period.

If you would be interested in participating in this scheme please do let me know as a discount code needs to be issued prior to the purchase of ab93851.

I hope this information has been of help. If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us again.
