Description

Description

Description: This 3G8 monoclonal antibody reacts with human and non-human primate CD16, which is also known as the low-affinity Fc gamma RIII. CD16 exists as two distinct isoforms, Fc gamma RIIIA and Fc gamma RIIIB. In humans, Fc gamma RIIIA is expressed as a polypeptide-anchored form on monocytes, macrophages, and lymphocytes such as NK cells. T and B cells do not express this Fc receptor. Fc gamma RIIIB is also detected on neutrophils as a GPI-anchored form. Expression of CD16 on lymphocytes and monocytes is similar in non-human primates. However, while CD16 is not found on neutrophils in macaques and baboons, this receptor is detected on these cells in sooty mangabeys. Binding of IgG leads to activation of signal transduction pathways, resulting in antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC), phagocytosis, cytokine release, and antigen presentation. This monoclonal antibody has been reported to have several functional activities, including inhibition of cytotoxic ability, activation of cell signaling, and NK cell depletion in vivo. Moreover, the 3G8 antibody clone has been demonstrated to work on capuchin monkey, chimpanzee, common marmoset, cynomologous monkey, hamadyras baboon, olive baboon, pigtailed macaque, rhesus, and squirrel monkey. Based on cross-blocking studies 3G8 recognizes the same epitope as CB16. However, 3G8 and B73.1 antibody clones bind distinct epitopes.

Applications Reported: This 3G8 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis and functional assays. Applications Tested: This 3G8 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 1 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. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered. Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE. Endotoxin Level: Less than 0.001 ng/µg antibody, as determined by LAL assay. Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC. CD16 (FCGR3A) is a 50-65 kDa cell surface molecule that exists in two forms - a transmembranous form expressed by NK cells and some T cells, and a phosphatidylinositol linked form expressed by granulocytes. CD16 is a low affinity receptor for IgG (FcR III), and is an important receptor mediating ADCC by NK cells. Human CD16 is expressed in two forms – FCGR3A and FCGR3B. FCGR3A is associated with the FcepsilonRI-gamma subunit and is responsible for antibody-dependent NK cell cytotoxicity. Mast cell FCGR3A is associated, with FcepsilonRI-beta subunit. Besides IgG, FCGR3A can be triggered also by oligomeric IgE. FCGR3B is a GPI-linked monomeric receptor expressed on neutrophils and is involved in their activation and induction of a pro-adhesive phenotype. Diseases associated with CD16 dysfunction include immunodeficiency 20 and systemic lupus erythematosus.
