Pan B Cells antibody specific anti equine reagents have yet to be fully characterized for the typically recognized B-cell makers such as CD19, CD20, CD21, CD22 and CD79. While testing has demonstrated the cross reactivity of some monoclonal B-cell markers raised against other species with equine B cells, such as the Mouse anti Human CD79a antibody, (clone HM57), an overview of which may be found in the report of the second equine leucocyte antigen workshop. Pan B Cells antibody is directed against equine Ig light chains. Characterization studies demonstrated that clone CVS36 bound 100% of CD5-ve peripheral blood lymphocytes and recognized all equine B-cells (Lunn et al. 1998) As the antigen recognized by clone CVS36 appears to be present on the surface of all equine B-cells it is therefore is a reagent that can be used as a pan B-cell marker for domestic horses.
