Detection of Rat CD19 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of rat splenocytes. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Rat CD19 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF7489) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). Specific bands were detected for CD19 at approximately 85-100 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

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.
