|Calculated MW||This protein is fused with 6×his tag at the C-terminus, and has a calculated MW of 22.7 kDa. The predicted N-terminus is Gly 17. DTT-reduced Protein migrates as 36-45 kDa in SDS-PAGE due to glycosylation.|
|Other Names||FCGR3A, CD16A, FCG3, FCGR3, IGFR3|
|Results||Measured by its ability to bind human IgG with an estimated KD < 45 nM.|
|Application Notes||Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in sterile PBS, pH 7.4 to a concentration of 50 µg/ml. Do not vortex. This solution can be stored at 2-8°C for up to 1 month. For extended storage, it is recommended to store at -20°C.|
|Storage||-20°C; Lyophilized from 0.22 µm filtered solution in PBS, pH7.4. Normally Mannitol or Trehalose is added as protectants before lyophilization.|

CD16 is a low affinity Fc receptor, and has been identified as Fc receptors FcγRIIIa (CD16a) and Fcγ IIIb (CD16b). These receptors bind to the Fc portion of IgG antibodies. CD16 encoded by two different highly homologous genes in a cell type-specific manner.CD16 is found on the surface of natural killer cells, neutrophil polymorphonuclear leukocytes, monocytes and macrophages. CD16a antigen is also known as Low affinity immunoglobulin gamma Fc region receptor III-A, Fc-gamma RIII-alpha. CD16b is a low-affinity, GPI-linked receptor expressed by neutrophils and eosinophils, whereas CD16a is an intermediate affinity polypeptide-anchored transmembrane glycoprotein expressed natural killer cells, macrophages, subpopulation of T-cells, immature thymocytes and placentaltrophoblasts.CD16a is involved in phagocytosis, secretion of enzymes and inflammatory mediators, antibody dependent cytotoxicity and clearance of immune complexes. Aberrant expression or mutations of CD16a is implicated in susceptibility to recurrent viral infections, systemic lupus erythematosus, and alloimmune neonatal neutropenia.
