This antibody recognizes an epitope in the first membrane-distal domain of CD16 and recognizes both CD16A and CD16B.
Heat-mediated antigen retrieval using a sodium citrate buffer (pH 6.0) is recommended for the staining of paraffin sections. A suggested positive control for this product is human tonsil.
For FACS analysis, use 10ul of the suggested working dilution to label 1x10^6 cells in 100ul.
CD16, a 50-65kDa cell surface molecule, is the low-affinity receptor for IgG (FcR III). CD16 exists as a transmembranous form (Fc gammaRIIIA, or CD16A) and a glycosyl phosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchored form (Fc gammaRIIIB, or CD16B). CD16A is expressed by NK cells, some T cells, and macrophages, whereas CD16B is primarily expressed by granulocytes. In addition, CD16B exists as two allelic variants NA1 and NA2.
