Detection of Mouse CD79B by Western Blot.
Western blot shows lysates of mouse lymph node tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Mouse CD79B Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF6814) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for CD79B at approximately 38 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
Detection of CD79B in Mouse Splenocytes by Flow Cytometry.
Mouse splenocytes were stained with Sheep Anti-Mouse CD79B Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF6814) followed by Allophycocyanin-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0127) and Rat Anti-Mouse B220/CD45R PE-conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB1217P). Quadrant markers were set based on control antibody staining (Catalog # 5-001-A).
CD79B in Mouse Splenocytes.
CD79B was detected in immersion fixed mouse splenocytes using Sheep Anti-Mouse CD79B Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF6814) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (red, upper panel; Catalog # NL010) and counterstained with DAPI (blue, lower panel). Specific staining was localized to cell surfaces and cytoplasm. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Non-adherent Cells.

CD79B (also known as B29, Ig beta and B cell antigen receptor complex-associated protein beta -chain) is a 37-39 kDa member of the Ig-Superfamily. It is expressed on B cells, and forms a covalent heterodimer with CD79a. This complex interacts noncovalently with membrane Ig, forming the B cell antigen receptor. Within this complex, membrane Ig detects antigen while CD79a:b initiates signaling. CD79B is also required for formation of pre-B cells during B cell development. Mature mouse CD79B is a 203 amino acid (aa) type I transmembrane glycoprotein (aa 26-228). It contains an extracellular region with one V-type Ig-like domain (aa 41-132) and an ITAM‑containing cytoplasmic domain (aa 181-228). CD79B may migrate as two bands in SDS-PAGE. One defines the standard 37 kDa form, while a second represents one of two possible isoforms, the first of which is an underglycosylated full-length CD79B, and the second of which is an alternative splice form that likely lacks the C‑terminal 32 amino acids. Mouse CD79a and CD79B share only 24% aa identity. Over aa 29-158, mouse CD79B shares 54% and 78% aa identity with human and rat CD79B, respectively.
