Specifications for CD207 (Langerin) Antibody, anti-human


Langerin (CD207 antigen), a 40 kDa, glycosylated type II transmembrane C-type lectin receptor, is the standard marker for human and murine Langerhans cells (LCs).
LCs are a subset of dendritic cells (DCs) cells that reside in epithelia; the best studied example of these antigen-presenting cells are LCs of the epidermis.
CD207 is directly involved in antigen capture as well as endocytosis and induces the formation of typical Birbeck granules in immature DCs.
