Purified Mouse Anti-Human CD21

Flow cytometric analysis of CD21 expression on human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC). PBMC were stained with either Purified Mouse Anti-Human CD21 (Cat. No. 552727, shaded histogram) or Purified Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 552727, open histogram), followed by FITC Goat Anti-Mouse Ig (Cat. No. 554001). The histograms were derived from the gated events based on light scattering characteristics of viable lymphocytes.

Preparation And Storage

Store undiluted at 4°C. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.

Recommended Assay Procedures

Immunofluorescent Staining and Flow Cytometry: The 1048 antibody is useful for flow cytometric analysis of CD21/CR2 expressed on cell surfaces. Double staining PBMCs with clone 1048 and BD Biosciences Pharmingen's other CD21 specific clone, B-ly4 (Cat. No. 559867) reveal up to 98% identity of the positive population, indicating that these two clones recognize different epitopes of CR2 (data not shown).

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
  4. Sodium azide is a reversible inhibitor of oxidative metabolism; therefore, antibody preparations containing this preservative agent must not be used in cell cultures nor injected into animals. Sodium azide may be removed by washing stained cells or plate-bound antibody or dialyzing soluble antibody in sodium azide-free buffer. Since endotoxin may also affect the results of functional studies, we recommend the NA/LE (No Azide/Low Endotoxin) antibody format, if available, for in vitro and in vivo use.

1048

CD21 is a 145 kDa transmembrane glycoprotein that is expressed on mature B cells, follicular dendritic cells, a subset of immature thymocytes and on some epithelial cells. CD21 is also known as the C3d Receptor, Complement Receptor 2 (CR2), and the Epstein-Barr Virus receptor, (EBV-R). CD21 is part of a large signal-transduction complex that also includes CD19, CD81 and Leu13. CR2 serves as a receptor for the activation fragments of complement component C3, i.e. C3d, iC3d, and C3dg and C3d-bound antigens and plays a central role in the immune response by amplifying B-cell activation and proliferation. CR2 is also the receptor for EBV by binding its surface glycoprotein gp350/220. Anti-human CR2 hybridomas were generated from Cr2-/-mice (lacking the cr2 gene, that encodes CR2 and CR1 in mice) immunized with the recombinant protein representing the first two amino-terminal short consensus repeats (SRC) of human CR2, SCR1-2. Both the C3d and EBV binding sites of hu CR2 were localized to these sites. Clone 1048 has been reported to specifically react with CR2-expressing cells and to inhibit CR2 interactions with C3 fragments or the EBV surface protein, gp350/220.

Purified
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
