Description: The MG38 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD205, also known as DEC-205, an integral membrane protein homologous to the macrophage mannose receptor. CD205 is an endocytic dendritic receptor that mediates efficient processing and presentation of antigens on MHC class II productions in vivo. CD205 is highly expressed by dendritic cells (DCs) within the T cell areas of lymphoid tissues, particularly on CD8^+ DCs that are believed to play a role in cross-priming. Expression of CD205 is detected with this antibody at high intensity on in vitro derived mature human DCs (mDC) and at intermediate intensity on immature human DCs (iDC). All leukocytes from peripheral blood show a degree of staining with this mAb that can be minimized by using very low concentrations of MG38.
Applications Reported: The MG38 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This MG38 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of in vitro derived human dendritic cells and peripheral blood cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.03 µg per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.
Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
CD205 (LY25, Lymphocyte Antigen 75) is an integral membrane glycoprotein involved in antigen uptake, trafficking and presentation that improves the induction of antigen-specific T cell immunity. CD205 is highly expressed by CD8+ dendritic cells (DCs) and also expressed at different levels by bone marrow Gr1+ cells, Langerhans cells, (BMDC) bone marrow derived DCs and thymic epithelial cells. CD205 acts as an endocytic receptor that directs captured antigens to the extracellular space towards a specialized antigen processing region. Further, CD205 also prompts the reduced proliferation of B lymphocytes. Diseases associated with CD205 dysfunction include pneumonic plague and lipid pneumonia.
