Overview

The IV.3 antibody reacts with human CD32 (FcγRII), an ~40 kDa type 1 transmembrane glycoprotein that mediates several functions including phagocytosis, cytotoxicity, immunomodulation and platelet aggregation. CD32 is encoded by three genes (A, B, C) and at least 6 isoforms are generated via alternative mRNA splicing, i.e., IIa1, IIa2, IIb1, IIb2, IIb3 and IIc. All isoforms are expressed by monocytes/macrophages, placental trophoblasts and endothelial cells. In addition, the IIb isoform is expressed by B cells, and the IIa isoform by platelets, granulocytes and, weakly, by B cells. Isoform IIc is expressed by NK cells and neutrophils. CD32 binds weakly to the Fc region of monomeric IgG but more strongly to IgG aggregates and immune complexes. These interactions can result in non-specific labeling in antibody-based detection and cell separation experiments and the IV.3 antibody may be employed as a blocking antibody to reduce non-specific binding. The IV.3 antibody binds most strongly to the IIa isoforms of CD32, with the epitope mapped to amino acids 132 - 137 [FSHLDP] in domain 2, within the ligand binding site. Binding of the IV.3 antibody can be blocked by clone FLI8.26 in flow cytometry analyses, suggesting that these clones may share a common or overlapping epitope.

This antibody clone has been verified for purity assessments of cells isolated with EasySep™ kits, including EasySep™ Human T Cell Enrichment Kit (Catalog #19051) and EasySep™ Human CD4+ T Cell Enrichment Kit (Catalog #19052).

Cell 2018 JAN Transmembrane Pickets Connect Cyto- and Pericellular Skeletons Forming Barriers to Receptor Engagement. Freeman SA et al.

Abstract

Phagocytic receptors must diffuse laterally to become activated upon clustering by multivalent targets. Receptor diffusion, however, can be obstructed by transmembrane proteins (pickets") that are immobilized by interacting with the cortical cytoskeleton. The molecular identity of these pickets and their role in phagocytosis have not been defined. We used single-molecule tracking to study the interaction between Fcγ receptors and CD44 an abundant transmembrane protein capable of indirect association with F-actin hence likely to serve as a picket. CD44 tethers reversibly to formin-induced actin filaments curtailing receptor diffusion. Such linear filaments predominate in the trailing end of polarized macrophages where receptor mobility was minimal. Conversely receptors were most mobile at the leading edge where Arp2/3-driven actin branching predominates. CD44 binds hyaluronan anchoring a pericellular coat that also limits receptor displacement and obstructs access to phagocytic targets. Force must be applied to traverse the pericellular barrier enabling receptors to engage their targets.
Nature communications 2015 JAN Mast cells form antibody-dependent degranulatory synapse for dedicated secretion and defence. Joulia R et al.

Abstract

Mast cells are tissue-resident immune cells that play a key role in inflammation and allergy. Here we show that interaction of mast cells with antibody-targeted cells induces the polarized exocytosis of their granules resulting in a sustained exposure of effector enzymes, such as tryptase and chymase, at the cell-cell contact site. This previously unidentified mast cell effector mechanism, which we name the antibody-dependent degranulatory synapse (ADDS), is triggered by both IgE- and IgG-targeted cells. ADDSs take place within an area of cortical actin cytoskeleton clearance in the absence of microtubule organizing centre and Golgi apparatus repositioning towards the stimulating cell. Remarkably, IgG-mediated degranulatory synapses also occur upon contact with opsonized Toxoplasma gondii tachyzoites resulting in tryptase-dependent parasite death. Our results broaden current views of mast cell degranulation by revealing that human mast cells form degranulatory synapses with antibody-targeted cells and pathogens for dedicated secretion and defence.
