The RP/14 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD180, the "radioprotective" 105 kDa (RP105) antigen expressed on mature B lymphocytes. Like other members of the Toll-like Receptor (TLR) family, the extracellular region of CD180 contains tandem repeats of a leucine-rich motif flanked by regions containing conserved cysteines. These characteristic structural components of TLR may mediate protein-protein interactions and regulation of signal transduction involved in innate immune responses. Furthermore, CD180 associates with the secretory protein MD-1 on the cell surface. Cross-linking of cell-surface CD180 with the RP/14 antibody induces activation signals in B lymphocytes. Despite the expression of CD180 on lymphocytes of all strains tested (BALB/c, BALB/c.xid, C3H, C57BL/6, CBA/N, and 129/Sv), some strains (BALB/c.xid, C57BL/6.xid, CBA/N, 129/Sv, and 129/Ola) display deficient responses to that stimulatory effects of mAb RP/14.

NA/LE refers to the culture and purification methods and buffer used to produce purified antibodies with no azide and low endotoxin: Aqueous buffered solution containing no preservative, 0.2µm sterile filtered. Endotoxin level is ≤0.01 EU/µg (≤0.001 ng/µg) of protein as determined by the LAL assay.NA/LE are perfectly suited to be used in culture or in vivo (for nonhuman studies) for functional assays — blocking, neutralizing, activation or depletion — where the presence of azide may damage cells or exogenous endotoxin may signal or activate cells.
