Anti-CD35, Clone To5


CD35, also known as complement receptor 1 (CR1), is a 220-300 kDa N-glycosylated member of the RCA (regulators of complement activation) family of proteins. It is a cell membrane-bound, monomeric glycoprotein and its primary function is act as the receptor for complement components C3b and C4b, and it mediates the phagocytosis by neutrophils and monocytes of particles coated with C3b or C4b. CD35 binds and internalizes particles and immune complexes that are opsonized with MBL or complement components C3b, C3i, C4b, or C1q.CD35 additionally protects the cell from complement-mediated lysis by serving as a cofactor for Factor I and inhibiting the C3 and C5 convertases. CD35 is expressed on granulocytes, monocytes, B cells, some NK cells and erythrocytes. CD35 labels follicular dendritic cells of normal and neoplastic origin and is, thus,a useful marker for follicular dendritic cell sarcoma.
