Mouse anti Bovine WC4 antibody, clone CC55
recognizes the bovine WC4 cell surface antigen, a ~90kDa molecule expressed by a subpopulation of B cells in peripheral blood and lymphoid tissues (Howard et al. 1993
). It is suggested that WC4, like SWC7 in pigs, is the bovine orthologue of human CD19 (Naessens and Howard 1991
, Ikebuchi et al. 2013
