Specificity Monoclonal Rat B-lymphocyte antibody BM4013 (clone Ki-B1R) is a pan B-cell marker useful for detecting B-lymphocytes and plasma cells in cell suspensions and tissue sections.
Ki-B1R recognises a surface antigen of 47 kD molecular weight, which appears as a single band under reducing conditions in SDS-PAGE.
The antibody is specific for Rat mature B-lymphocytes and plasma cells. Other species not tested.
Antigen Distribution:
Isolated Cells: In a test comparing the immunophenotype of rat blood lymphocytes, Ki-B1R recognised 19% +/- 3% of peripheral blood lymphocytes (n=5).
In the same test, 18% +/- 3% of the lymphocytes stained positive for sIg, whereas 79% +/- 3% stained positive with Ki-T1R, the rat pan T-cell marker.
Tissue Sections: Ki-B1R shows a staining pattern similar to that of anti-rat immunoglobulin markers. Follicular mantle B-lymphocytes are strongly positive whereas staining of germinal centre B-lymphocytes depends on the immunological status of the lyphoid organ. In the gastrointestinal tract, the typical mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) selectively displays the B-follicles, mostly those containing prominent germinal centres. The reactivity pattern of Ki-B1R does not change when applied in vivo.

Background B cells are lymphocytes that play a large role in the humoral immune response as opposed to the cell-mediated immune response that is governed by T cells. The abbreviation "B" comes from bursa of Fabricius that is an organ in birds in which avian B cells mature. The principal function of B cells is to make antibodies against soluble antigens. B cells are an essential component of the adaptive immune system.
Synonyms B-cell marker, B cells
