Epitope competition
In order to compare the epitope specificity of an antibody, the clone being used is compared with other known clones recognizing the same antigen in a competition assay.
Other clonesOverlap in epitope recognition with REA295
Cells were incubated with an excess of purified unconjugated CD208 (DC-LAMP) (REA295) antibody followed by staining with fluorochrome-conjugated antibodies of other known clones against the same marker. Based on the fluorescence signal obtained, the clones were identified as recognizing completely overlapping (++), partially overlapping (+), or completely different epitopes (-) of the marker.

Specifications for CD208 (DC-LAMP) Antibody, anti-human, REAfinity™


Clone REA295 recognizes the CD208 antigen, a single-pass type I intracellular protein also known as lysosome-associated membrane glycoprotein 3 (LAMP-3) or DC-lysosome–associated membrane glycoprotein (DC-LAMP). CD208 was first cloned as a gene specifically expressed in lung tissues and found to be overexpressed in primary cancers of the esophagus, colon, fallopian tube, ovary, breast, and liver, although its expression was barely detectable in the corresponding normal tissues. It is almost exclusively expressed by mature dendritic cells (DCs). Expression can be induced in CD34
derived dendritic cells by stimulation with GM-CSF and TNF-α or in monocytes by the stimulation with GM-CSF and IL-4. CD208 is found in the MHC class II compartment immediately before the translocation of MHC class II molecules to the cell surface, after which it concentrates into perinuclear lysosomes. This suggests that CD208 might change the lysosome function after the transfer of peptide-MHC class II molecules to the surface of DC.
Additional information: Clone REA295 displays negligible binding to Fc receptors.
