B Cells antibody | FMC7
Filter by Application:F Reset
|Mouse anti Human B cells antibody, clone FMC7 recognizes a glycoprotein antigen of ~105 kDa expressed by B lymphocytes. The FMC7 antigen is expressed by peripheral B lymphocytes. Mouse anti Human B cells antibody, clone FMC7 has been used extensively to differentiate various types of B cell malignancy. B-CLL is generally considered to be negative for FMC7 expression, but strong staining is seen in many other types of B cell lymphoma, including prolymphocytic leukemia and hairy cell leukemia.
The expression pattern of the FMC7 antigen closely corresponds to that seen with CD22. Mouse anti Human B cells antibody, clone FMC7 recognizes a conformational epitope on the CD20 molecule, most likely a multimeric complex of CD20 (Serke et al. 2001). Identity of CD20 as the antigen recognized by Mouse anti Human B cells antibody, clone FMC7 was further confirmed by strong recognition of recombinant CD20 expressed in hematopoietic and non-haematopoietic cell lines and abolition of binding in CD20 extracellular domain mutations. The recognized epitope has also been shown to be cholesterol dependent (Polyak et al. 2003).
