CD304 (BDCA-4) antibodies, human

Clone: AD5-17F6
Clone AD5-17F6 recognizes the human CD304 (BDCA-4) antigen. Like CD303 (BDCA-2), the CD304 (BDCA-4) antigen is specifically expressed on human plasmacytoid dendritic cells in blood and bone marrow. Unlike CD303 (BDCA-2), expression of CD304 (BDCA-4) is up-regulated on plasmacytoid dendritic cells and induced on myeloid cells upon culturing. In inflamed tonsils, CD304 (BDCA-4) expression, apart from plasmacytoid dendritic cells, is also detected primarily on follicular B helper memory T cells. CD304 (BDCA-4) is identical to neuropilin-1 (NP-1), a neuronal receptor, which is known to be expressed on numerous nonhematopoietic cell types, including neurons, endothelial, and tumor cells. CD1a
dendritic cells generated
ex vivo
from monocytes or hematopoietic precursor cells are CD304 (BDCA-4)
but CD303 (BDCA-2)

Alternative names

NRP1, BDCA-4, NP1, Nrp, VEGF165R
