Detection of IL-21 R in Human Blood Lymphocytes by Flow Cytometry. Human peripheral blood lymphocytes were stained with Mouse Anti-Human IL-21 R PE-conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB9911P) and Mouse Anti-Human CD19 Fluorescein-conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB4867F). Quadrant markers were set based on control antibody staining (Catalog # IC002P). View our protocol for Staining Membrane-associated Proteins.

Background: IL-21 R
Interleukin-21 (IL-21) and its receptor play an important role in the regulation of the immune system. IL-21 R, also called NILR (novel interleukin receptor), is a type I cytokine receptor with 4 conserved cysteine residues and an extracellular WSXWS motif. It is most closely related to IL-2 R beta, IL-4 R alpha, and IL-9 R. The gene for human IL-21 R has been mapped to chromosome 16p12. Human IL-21 R is a 538 amino acid (aa) residue type I transmembrane protein with a 19 aa signal peptide, a 217 aa extracellular domain, a 19 aa transmembrane domain, and a 283 aa cytoplasmic domain. IL-21 R is expressed on lymphoid tissues, peripheral B cells, and cell lines of T, B, and NK lineage. The common gamma chain ( gamma c) is required for IL-21 R signaling. The IL-21/IL-21 R interaction appears to play an important role in B and T cell proliferation after antigen stimulation and NK cell maturation.
