Description: The 93 monoclonal antibody reacts with an epitope shared by mouse CD16 and CD32. CD16 (Fc gamma III Receptor) and CD32 (Fc gamma II Receptor) are the low affinity receptors for the mouse IgG Fc portion and are expressed by B cells, monocyte/macrophages, NK cells, and neutrophils.
Applications Reported: This 93 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This 93 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse bone marrow cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.125 µg per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.

CD16 is a 50-65kD cell surface molecule which exists in two forms - a transmembranous form expressed by NK cells and some T cells and a phosphatidylinositol linked form expressed by granulocytes. CD16 is a low affinity receptor for IgG (FcR III), and is an important receptor mediating ADCC by NK cells. CD32 antigen is a 40 kD glycoprotein that acts as a low affinity receptor for IgG (also known as Fc gamma RII). The antigen mediates several functions including endocytosis, activation of secretion, cytotoxicity and immunomodulation. CD32 is expressed by B cells, monocytes, granulocytes and platelets.
