FcγReceptors belong to the immunoglobulin superfamily and are expressed at varying levels in multiple cell lineages including high expression in myeloid and B cells. The major functions of Fc receptors are protective functions of the immune system. There are multiple different types of Fc receptors reflecting a variety of different biological activities, which are modulated when they are aggregated by multivalent antigen-antibody complexes.
While normally serving important physiological roles in the immune system, Fc Receptors can also be the cause of nonspecific, false-positive antibody staining of cells. Human BD Fc Block™ is designed and formulated to block or significantly reduce potential non-specific antibody staining caused by receptors for IgG that may be encountered in various applications including the flow cytometric analysis of human cells. Moreover, it can increase the specificity of antibody labeling of extremely rare target cells such as antigen-specific B cells, fetal cells in maternal blood, hematopoietic progenitor cells, or disseminated epithelial tumor cells.
