Mouse Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Life Technologies LS17918541
CXCR5 expression has been reported in human blood and salivary gland and in animal lymphatic organs, blood, bone marrow, brain, liver, lymph node, skin, spleen, stomach, and tonsil. ESTs have been isolated from human brain, germ cell, lung, lymph, and pancreas. G-protein Coupled Receptors (GPCRs) comprise one of the largest families of signaling molecules with more than a thousand members currently predicted to exist. All GPCRs share a structural motif consisting of seven membrane-spanning helices, and exist in both active and inactive forms. An array of activating ligands participate in the conformation of GPCRs which leads to signaling via G-proteins and downstream effectors. Ongoing studies have also shown the vast series of reactions which participate in the negative regulation of GPCRs. This turn-off activity has tremendous implications for the physiological action of the cell, and continues to drive pharmacological research for new drug candidates. Two blockbuster drugs which have been developed as GPCR-targeted pharmaceuticals are Zyprexa (Eli Lilly) and Claritin (Schering-Plough) which have multi-billion dollar shares of the mental health and allergy markets, respectively.Description: The MU5UBEE monoclonal antibody reacts with human and non-human primate CD185. CD185, which is also known as C-X-C chemokine receptor 5 (CXCR5) and Burkitt lymphoma receptor 1 (BLR1), is a seven transmembrane G protein-coupled receptor originally identified in Burkitt's lymphoma. In peripheral blood, CD185 is expressed on B cells, CD4+ T cells (but not Th1 or Th2 cells), as well as on a subpopulation of memory (CD45RO+) T cells. Circulating CD185+ T cells are in a resting state and migrate to the lymph nodes due to expression of CCR7 and CD62L. In tonsil, CD185 is expressed on nearly all CD4+ cells together with CD45RO and activation markers such as CD69 and ICOS. Tonsillar CD185+ cells have been shown to induce antibody production when co-cultured with B cells, thus supporting their role in providing help to B cells. Furthermore, this chemokine receptor plays a critical role in lymphocyte trafficking, in particular T cell migration into the B cell follicles of germinal centers in response to CXCL13, making CD185 an established marker of follicular helper T cells.The MU5UBEE monoclonal antibody also crossreacts with Rhesus macaque.Applications Reported: This MU5UBEE antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.Applications Tested: This MU5UBEE antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 μL (0.125 μg) per test. A test is defined as the amount (μg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 μL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test.Excitation: 633-647 nm; Emission: 660 nm; Laser: Red Laser.Filtration: 0.2μm post-manufacturing filtered.
