Identification of human NK cell antigen expressing the 50 -70 kDa M.W. surface antigen associated with the IgG Fc receptor III on NK cells and Neutrophils. CD16 is expressed on approximately 15% of peripheral blood lymphocytes and is present on all resting NK cells. CD16 may be expressed on CD3 T cells from certain individuals.


CD16=Derived from the hybridization of mouse P3-X63-Ag8.653 myeloma cells with spleen cells of BALB/c mice immunized with NK lymphocytes


Provided as sterile filtered solution in phosphate buffered saline with 0.08% sodium azide and 0.2% carrier protein

Customer Storage
