Contributor Information

  • Institute Absolute Antibody; University of Oxford

Tool Details

  • Tool name: Anti-CD21L [R4/23]
  • Alternate names: Complement Component (3d/Epstein Barr Virus) Receptor 2; Epstein-Barr Virus Receptor 2; Complement C3d Receptor 3; EBV Receptor 3; C3DR 3; CD21 Antigen; CVID7; SLEB9; CD21; Cr2
  • Clone: R4/23
  • Tool type: Antibodies
  • Tool sub-type: Primary antibody
  • Class: Recombinant
  • Conjugate: Unconjugated
  • Reactivity: Human
  • Host: Mouse
  • Application: WB
  • Description: CR2 is expressed strongly on mature B cells, follicular dentritic cells and weakly on immature thymocytes and T lymphocytes. CR2 functions as a receptor for C3d, C3dg and iC3b Complement components and for EBV and for IFN alpha. Follicular dendritic cells (contained in B cell follicles) selectively express the “Long” isoform of CR2 (CD21L) that contains an additional exon (10a) compared to CR2 (CD21). R4/23 recognises the long form of CR2 and can be used to identify dendritic reticulum cells (or their remnants) in lymphoid tissues.
  • Immunogen: Cell lysate from a chronic lymphocytic leukemia patient.
  • Isotype: IgM
  • Research area: Cell Type or Organelle Marker ; Immunology

  • For Research Use Only

Target Details
