Description: The 3D12 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CCR7, also known as EBI-1 and CD197. CCR7 is a member of the G-protein-coupled chemokine receptor family with seven membrane-spanning domains and functions as a receptor for 6Ckine/SLC (secondary lymphoid-tissue chemokine), CCL19 and CCL21. CCR7 has been shown to be internalized via clathrin-coated pits and the majority recycled back to the plasma membrane. CCR7 is expressed on T cells and can be used to distinguish populations of naive from central and effector memory T cells. CCR7 has been shown to play a role in migration of memory T cells to inflamed tissue. Expression of CCR7 is also found on DC's. During DC maturation CCR7 expression increases and is thought to be involved in a variety of functions: chemotaxis to the lymph node, cellular architecture, rate of endocytosis, survival and maturation. Expression of CCR7 on the cell surface can be down regulated upon ligand binding.
Applications Reported: This 3D12 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This 3D12 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 µL (0.5 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 staining incubation time be increased to at least 45 minutes at 2-8°C for optimal staining.

CCR7 is a member of the G protein coupled receptor family (subfamily: chemokine). This receptor was identified as a gene induced by the Epstein Barr virus (EBV), and is thought to be a mediator of EBV effects on B lymphocytes. CCR7 has been reported to be expressed in blood, bone marrow, lymph node, and intestine. It is particularly expressed in lymphoid tissues and in activated B and T lymphocytes and has been shown to control the migration of memory T cells to inflamed tissues, as well as stimulate dendritic cell maturation. The chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 19 (CCL19/ECL) has been reported to be a specific ligand of this receptor. ESTs have been isolated from blood, embryo, lymph node, and thymus libraries.
