CD20 MicroBeads, human

CD20 MicroBeads, human

CD20 MicroBeads were developed for positive selection or depletion of human CD20
B cells from different cell sources such as human PBMCs, bone marrow, cell cultures or lymphoid tissues.

Background information

CD20 is a non-glycosylated transmembrane protein of 33–37 kDa that becomes heavily phosphorylated upon activation
. It is expressed exclusively on B cells, including pre-B cells, naive, mature, and activated B cells, B cell blasts, and the majority of malignant B cells, but not on early B cell progenitors or plasma cells

Downstream applications

Purified CD20
B cells may be used in cell biological studies, such as analysis of signal transduction, chemotaxis, allergen response, apoptosis, or in molecular studies, e.g., subset-specific microarrays.


For positive selection: MS, LS, XS, or autoMACS
Columns. For depletion: LD, D, or autoMACS Columns.
