The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/50 - 1/200. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
Germinal center-B (GC-B) cells differentiate into memory B-cells and plasma cells (PC) through interaction with T-cells and follicular dendritic cells (FDC). CD320 augments the proliferation of PC precursors generated by IL-10. Receptor for the cellular uptake of transcobalamin bound cobalamin.
Expressed abundantly on follicular dendritic cells (FDCs).
Defects in CD320 are the cause of methylmalonic aciduria type TCblR (MMATC) [MIM:613646]; also called methylmalonic aciduria due to transcobalamin receptor defect. MMATC is a metabolic disorder characterized by increased blood C3-acylcarnitine levels, elevated methylmalonate and homocysteine, and low uptake of transcobalamin-bound cobalamin, but normal conversion to adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin. Plasma vitamin B12 and total homocysteine are normal.
