|Specificity:||The mouse monoclonal antibody EBVCS-5 recognizes an epitope located in the stalk region of human low affinity IgE receptor (CD23) between the 37 and 25 kDa cleavage sites.|
|Immunogen:||EBV-transformed human cells|
|Preparation:||The purified antibody is conjugated with Fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) under optimum conditions. The reagent is free of unconjugated FITC and adjusted for direct use. No reconstitution is necessary.|
|Storage Buffer:||The reagent is provided in stabilizing phosphate buffered saline (PBS) solution containing 15mM sodium azide.|
|Storage / Stability:||Store in the dark at 2-8°C. Do not freeze. Avoid prolonged exposure to light. Do not use after expiration date stamped on vial label.|
|Usage:||The reagent is designed for Flow Cytometry analysis of human blood cells using 4 μl reagent / 100 μl of whole blood or 106 cells in a suspension.
The content of a vial (0.4 ml) is sufficient for 100 tests.
|Expiration:||See vial label|
|Lot Number:||See vial label|
|Background:||CD23 (Fc epsilon RII), the low affinity IgE receptor, is a 45 kDa type II membrane glycoprotein expressed more or less on eosinophils, follicular dendritic cells, Langerhans cells, mature B cells (mainly upon activation), EBV-transformed lymphoblasts, monocytes, and subpopulation of platelets. A soluble form of 37 kDa and other its fragments were also described. CD23 mediates IgE-dependent cytotoxicity by eosinophils and macrophages, and downregulates IgE secretion in response to high levels of IgE, involving release of pro-inflammatory cytokines.|
