Description: The B3B4 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse CD23, a 45 kDa type II transmembrane glycoprotein. CD23 is expressed on resting conventional B cells, and its expression is modulated upon B-cell activation. B-1 cell lineage (CD5+ B cells) does not express CD23. Soluble forms of the antigen have been reported to be biologically active. CD23 is a low affinity receptor for IgE and is thought to play a role in the regulation of IgE response and B-cell activation. CD21 is thought to bind to CD23.
Applications Reported: The B3B4 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: The B3B4 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse splenocytes. This can be used at less than or equal to 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 antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.

CD23 is a 45kDa glycoprotein, which is present on a subpopulation of freshly isolated peripheral blood and tonsil B cells and strongly expressed on EBV-transformed B lymphoblasts. The CD23 molecule is identical to the low affinity IgE receptor found on B cells. Expression of CD23 has been detected in neoplastic cells from cases of B cell chronic lymphocyctic leukaemia and some cases of centroblastic/centrocytic lymphoma.
