Rat anti Mouse CD71 antibody, clone 8D3 recognizes mouse CD71, a 763 amino acid ~95 kDa single pass type II transmembrane glycoproteincell surface, otherwise known as the transferrin receptor. CD71 is a major iron-binding protein, which plays a key role in the transport of iron into cells that require it. In mice, CD71 is widely expressed on a variety of cells, including Sertoli cells and cells which form the blood brain barrier (BBB) in the central nervous system.

Rat anti Mouse CD71 antibody, clone 8D3 recognizes native, soluble and denatured forms of murine CD71. Binding of the 8D3 antibody to CD71 does not inhibit the proliferation of cell lines tested, and does not interfere with the uptake of iron into cells.

Rat anti Mouse CD71 antibody, clone 8D3 has been used as a BBB transporter vector in mice and is suitable for studying CD71 expression, and iron uptake into different tissues, in the mouse (Kissel et al. 1988).
