CD268 / BAFF-R antibody | 2C4
Chicken BAFF-R (B cell activating factor receptor) differs from mammalian BAFF-R in that it is produced in B-cells (Reddy et al. 2008) and is not expressed by chicken T-cells. In addition to chicken, clone 2C4 has been shown to cross react with several other commercially important avian species and as such is a specific marker of B-cells for research in domestic galliforms.
Mouse anti Chicken CD268 / BAFF-R, clone 2C4 is unique in that it can be used in formalin fixed paraffin embbeded tissues and is therefore of particular use on sections from infection studies.
