cFluor® V505 anti-Human CD16 (3G8)
The 3G8 monoclonal antibody binds to IgG receptor III (FcγRIII) that are in two forms: CD16a ((FcγRIIIA) and CD16b ((FcγRIIIB). With 95% sequence similarity, they are a conventional 50-65 kD polypeptide-anchored transmembrane protein and a 48 kD GPI-anchored protein, respectively. CD16a is expressed on NK cells and macrophages while CD16b is expressed on neutrophils1,2. CD16a also plays a crucial role for antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC) by NK cells3. The antibody was conjugated to a fluorophore and purified by affinity chromatography.

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested using flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is 5 μL per 1 million cells in a staining volume of 100 μL. If whole blood is analyzed, then use 5 μL per 100 μL. It is recommended that users titrate the antibody to obtain the optimal result for their specific application.
