PB-644-T100 | Anti-Hu CD64 Pacific Blue, 100 tests
CD64 (FcgammaRI) is a cell surface receptor for Fc region of IgG. It is composed of specific ligand binding alpha subunit and promiscuous gamma subunit, which is indispensable for tyrosine-based signaling. However, even the alpha subunit can transduce signals leading to cellular effector functions. The isoform FcgammaRIa1 binds human IgG with high affinity, has limited myeloid cell distribution, and a relatively large intracellular domain. Products of related genes include FcgammaRIb and FcgammaRIc isoforms, but these specify low affinity IgG receptors if functionally expressed at all. Besides a role in antigen clearance, FcgammaRI (a1) can potently enhance MHC class I and II antigen presentation in vitro and in vivo.
