|Other Names||CD320 antigen, 8D6 antigen, FDC-signaling molecule 8D6, FDC-SM-8D6, Transcobalamin receptor, TCblR, CD320, CD320, 8D6A|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP13137b was selected from the C-term region of CD320. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||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.|

The CD320 antigen gene encodes the transcobalamin receptor(TCBLR). Cellular uptake of cobalamin (vitamin B12) is mediated byreceptors expressed on the cell surface. Transcobalamin II (TCN2;MIM 613441), a plasma protein secreted by endothelial cells, bindsthe cobalamin absorbed in the distal ileum and carries 10 to 30% oftotal circulating cobalamin. CD320 encodes a transcobalaminreceptor that binds TCN2-cobalamin at the plasma membrane andinternalizes the complex by endocytosis (Quadros et al., 2009[PubMed 18779389]).
