WC4 antibody | CC55
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).
