CD16 antibodies

CD16 antibodies

Clone: REA423
Clone REA423 recognizes the human CD16 antigen, a single-pass type I membrane protein which is also known as low affinity immunoglobulin gamma Fc region receptor III (FcRIII). CD16 is a 50–80 kDa glycoprotein that is expressed in two different isoforms. The transmembrane form is found on human NK cells, macrophages, and mast cells, while the glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-linked form is present on neutrophils. The human CD16 antigen is a low-affinity receptor for aggregated IgG. The transmembrane form plays a role in signal transduction, NK cell activation, and antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity. Clone REA423 recognizes both the extracellular domain of the transmembrane form as well as the GPI-linked form of the human CD16 antigen. CD16 is expressed on the majority of rhesus monkey NK cells and on a subset of monocytes but not on granulocytes.
Additional information: Clone REA423 displays negligible binding to Fc receptors.

Applications

Reagent can be used for immunophenotyping by flow cytometry. Abnormal numbers of cells expressing this antigen or aberrant expression levels of the antigen can be expected in some disease states. It is important to understand the normal expression pattern for this antigen and its relationship to expression of other relevant antigens in order to perform appropriate analysis.
Expression of CD16 may be used as aid to diagnostic in the characterization of samples from individuals suspected with hematologic neoplasia.
