Detection of FCRL6/FcRH6 in Human Peripheral Blood Lymphocytes by Flow Cytometry. Human peripheral blood lymphocytes were stained with Mouse Anti-Human NCAM‑1/CD56 APC‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB2408A) and either (A) Mouse Anti-Human FCRL6/FcRH6 Alexa Fluor® 488‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB6745G) or (B) Mouse IgG1 Alexa Fluor 488 Isotype Control (Catalog # IC002G).

FCRL6 (Fc Receptor-Like Protein 6), also known as FcRH6 and IFGP6, is a 66 kDa member of the Ig Superfamily. It is found on CD56dim CD16+ NK cells, CD56+ CD3+ NKT cells, gd T cells, and effector plus effector-memory CD8+ T cells. FCRL6 is not a receptor for immunoglobulin. It does, however, bind to isoforms of HLA-DR that are expressed on APCs. Given that FCRL6 contains a cytoplasmic ITIM, FCRL6 may function as an inhibitory receptor for MHC Class II. Mature human FCRL6 is a 415 amino acid (aa) type I transmembrane protein. It contains a 288 aa extracellular region (aa 20-307) that shows three C2-type Ig-like domains (aa 20-293), and a 106 aa cytoplasmic domain. There are multiple potential splice variants. One shows a deletion of aa 105-200 accompanied by a 13 aa substitution for aa 394-434; a second possesses a 15 aa substitution for aa 383-434; and a third shows an alternative start site seven aa upstream of the standard site accompanied by a 13 aa substitution for aa 394-434. Over aa 16-312, human FCRL6 shares only 33% aa sequence identity with the mouse counterpart to FCRL6.
