Detection of CMG‑2/ANTXR2 in Human Monocytes by Flow Cytometry. Human whole blood monocytes were stained with Goat Anti-Human CMG‑2/ANTXR2 Biotinylated Antigen Affinity‑purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # BAF2940, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # BAF108, open histogram), followed by Streptavidin-Phycoerythrin (Catalog # F0040).

CMG-2 is an anthrax toxin receptor (ATR) family protein that contains one von Willebrand factor type A domain. As a result of alternative splicing, at least four isoforms of secreted or type I membrane proteins exist. CMG-2 is widely expressed in human tissues. It binds selectively to collagen type IV and laminin and is also capable of binding the protective antigen (PA) of Bacillus anthracis in a divalent cation-dependent manner. Soluble CMG-2 is a potent antitoxin and may be used as a treatment for anthrax.
