Detection of Rat CD19 by Western Blot.
Western blot shows lysates of rat splenocytes. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Rat CD19 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB7489) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). Specific bands were detected for CD19 at approximately 60-110 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
CD19 in Rat Spleen.
CD19 was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of rat spleen using Mouse Anti-Rat CD19 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB7489) at 25 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to B-cells inside the germinal layers. View our protocol for Fluorescent IHC Staining of Frozen Tissue Sections.

CD19 (also surface antigen B4 and Leu12) is a 95‑110 kDa member of the Immunoglobulin superfamily of molecules. It is expressed by B cells, and interacts with CD21 for the purpose of reducing the threshold of the antigen signal needed to with activate the BCR. CD19 ligation also promotes B cell:follicular dendritic cell (FDC) interaction and B cell proliferation in the FDC zone of the spleen. Mature rat CD19 is a 529 amino acid (aa) type I transmembrane glycoprotein (aa 19‑547). Based on mouse, it contains a 269 aa extracellular region (aa 19‑287) plus a 236 aa cytoplasmic domain. The extracellular region possesses two C2-type Ig-like domains (aa 20‑113 and 171‑271) and one utilized phosphorylation site at Ser225. The cytoplasmic domain contains five potential Tyr phosphorylation sites. There is one splice form that shows a two aa substitution after Gly489. Over aa 19‑287, rat CD19 shares 88% and 57% aa sequence identity with mouse and human CD19, respectively.
