Additional Reported Applications For Relevant Conjugates ?
For specific conjugates of this clone, review literature for suggested application details.
Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.
Clone 2.4G2 recognizes the FcγIII and FcγII receptors.
These receptors are present on B cells, monocyte/macrophages, NK cells, neutrophils, mast cells and dendritic cells.
CD16 is expressed in two forms: CD16a and CD16b. CD16a (FcγRIIIA) is a 50-65 kD polypeptide-anchored transmembrane protein. CD16b (FcγRIIIB) is a 48 kD GPI-anchored protein whose extracellular domain is over 95% homologous to that of CD16a. CD16 regulates both phagocytosis and antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity. It has been reported that CD16 is involved in Natural Killer Cell activation and plays a role in signal transduction. The receptors, CD32 (FcγRIII) and CD16 (FcγRII), are 40-60 kD and bind antibody-antigen immune complexes and mediate adaptive immune responses.
