Specifications for CD83 Antibody, anti-human


The CD83 antibody reacts with a 45 kDa glycoprotein member of the immunoglobulin superfamily of receptors, also known as HB15. In humans, CD83 is expressed on the surface of activated dendritic cells (DCs) and can therefore be used as a marker for the phenotypical characterization of DC maturation. CD83 plays a role in antigen presentation and lymphocyte activation.
