DEC‑205/CD205 in Human PBMCs. DEC‑205/CD205 was detected in immersion fixed human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) using 10 µg/mL Goat Anti-Human DEC‑205/CD205 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2047) for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained with the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL001) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

DEC-205, also known as CD205 and lymphocyte antigen 75 (Ly 75), is a type I transmembrane protein that is primarily expressed on dendritic cells and thymic epithelial cells. The extracellular region of DEC-205 contains ten C-type lectin-like domains, a fibronectin type II domain and a ricin B-type lectin domain. DEC-205 functions as an endocytic receptor for antigens. The recombinant protein used to generate the anti‑human DEC-205 antibody contains the first two C-type lectin domains.
