Detects human CXCR7/RDC‑1 in direct ELISAs. In flow cytometry, reacts specifically with five distinct human CXCR7 transfectants, but does not react with their respective parental lines or mouse CXCR7 transfectants. In flow cytometry, also reacts with monocytes expressing CXCR7, but does not react with MCF-7 cells which have been reported to have surface-expressing CXCR7 using clone 11G8. Due to the conflicting reports published, use of monoclonal MAB4227 may result in an underestimation of CXCR7 expression on certain cell types.

Detection of CXCR7/RDC‑1 in Human peripheral blood Monocytes by Flow Cytometry. Human peripheral blood monocytes were stained with Mouse Anti-Human CXCR7/RDC‑1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB4227, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # MAB003, open histogram), followed by Allophycocyanin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG F(ab')2 Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0101B).
CXCR7/RDC‑1 in Human Breast Cancer Tissue. CXCR7/RDC‑1 was detected in perfusion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of nude mice injected with human breast cancer cells using Mouse Anti-Human CXCR7/RDC‑1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB4227) at 25 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

The G protein-coupled receptor, RDC1, belongs to a subgroup of chemokine receptors and has been designated CXCR7. CXCR7 can bind with high-affinity to CXCL12/SDF-1 and CXCL11/I-TAC. It is also a co-receptor for several HIV and SIV strains. In their N-termini and extracellular loops 1, 2, and 3, human and mouse CXCR7 share 84%, 100%, 96% and 86% amino acid sequence identity, respectively. Reports of mRNA levels and/or protein expression (as assessed using anti‑CXCR7, clone 9C4) (1, 2) indicate that CXCR7 occurs on a wide variety of tissues and cells including monocytes, B cells, T cells and mature dendritic cells. In contrast, based on ligand binding analysis and receptor level (as assessed using anti‑CXCR7, clone 11G8), surface expression of CXCR7 was reported to be restricted to tumor cells, activated endothelial cells, fetal liver cells, and few other cell types (3). The basis of these inconsistent observations is not known but may be attributed to cell context and the use of different antibodies that may recognize different epitopes.
