FC - Quality tested

Recommended Usage:

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is ≤0.25 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Cells from a collagenase-digested BALB/c

Cells from a collagenase-digested BALB/c mouse spleen were stained with CD11c Alexa Fluor® 488 and CD207 (clone 4C7) APC (top) or mouse IgG2a, κ APC isotype control (bottom).


CD207, also known as langerin, is a 40 kD single-pass type II transmembrane protein, member of the C-type lectin family. CD207 is expressed on the cell surface and Birbeck granules (BGs) of Langerhans cells, and subsets of thymic and splenic dendritic cells. Its ligands are mannose, n-acetylglucosamine, fucose, and sulfated glycans. Langerin is involved in the antigen processing pathway through capture and internalization of its ligands.
