Description: The EBVCS2 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD23, a 45 kDa type II transmembrane glycoprotein. CD23 is expressed on mature B cells, mantle zone B cells, follicular dendritic cells and at low levels on T, NK, langerhans cells and platelets. Expression of CD23 is upregulated upon B cell activation, and 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 and the alpha subunit of CD11b and CD11c bind to CD23.
Applications Reported: This EBVCS2 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This EBVCS2 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 µL (0.25 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.

Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
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.
