Human CD21 Antibody Summary
Accession # P20023
Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.
Detection of Human CD21 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human spleen tissue. PVDF Membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human CD21 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB4909) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for CD21 at approximately 145 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under non-reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1. This antibody is recommended to be used under non-reducing conditions only.
Detection of CD21 in Human PBMCs by Flow Cytometry. Human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were stained with Mouse Anti-Human CD19 PE-conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB4867P) and either (A) Mouse Anti-Human CD21 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB4909) or (B) Mouse IgG1Isotype Control (Catalog # MAB002) followed by Allophycocyanin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0101B).

CD21 (also called EBV receptor or CR2) is a 145 kDa member of the RCA (receptors of complement activation) family of proteins. It is expressed on T cells, B cells, and follicular dendritic cells. On the B cell surface, it combines with the BCR and CD19 to form a B cell activating complex. Mature human CD21 is 1013 amino acids (aa) in length. It is a type I transmembrane (TM) protein that contains a 951 aa extracellular domain (ECD) (aa 21-971) and a short 34 aa cytoplasmic tail. The ECD exhibits fifteen 60 aa SUSHI repeats. Soluble CD21 can be generated by cleavage near the TM domain. One potential splice variant shows a deletion of aa 847‑908, while another shows an insertion of 59 aa after Lys659. The ECD of human CD21 shares 71% aa identity with mouse CD21 ECD.
