Langerin (D9H7R) XP® Rabbit mAb (PE Conjugate) #90662

CD207   Langerin  

Applications Dilution Species-Reactivity Sensitivity MW (kDa) Isotype
F 1:50 Human, Endogenous Rabbit IgG

Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot.

Applications Key: F=Flow Cytometry,

Specificity / Sensitivity

Langerin (D9H7R) XP® Rabbit mAb (PE Conjugate) recognizes endogenous levels of total Langerin protein.

Source / Purification

Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Val14 of human langerin protein.


This Cell Signaling Technology antibody is conjugated to phycoerythrin (PE) and tested in-house for direct flow cytometry analysis in human cells. This antibody is expected to exhibit the same species cross-reactivity as the unconjugated Langerin (D9H7R) XP® Rabbit mAb #13650.

Flow Cytometry

Flow Cytometry

Flow cytometric analysis of MUTZ-3 cells, undifferentiated (blue) or differentiated (green) into Langerhans-like cells by treatment with Human Granulocyte Macrophage Colony Stimulating Factor (hGM-CSF) #8922 (10ng/ml), Human Transforming Growth Factor β1 (hTGF-β1) #8915 (10ng/ml), and Human Tumor Necrosis Factor-α (hTNF-α) #8902 (2.5ng/ml) for 10 days, using Langerin (D9H7R) XP® Rabbit mAb (PE Conjugate).


Langerin (CD207) is a C-type lectin receptor whose expression is restricted mainly to dendritic cells in the skin including Langerhans cells in the epidermis and langerin+/CD103+ dermal dendritic cells (1-4). Langerin is found on the cell surface and within rod-shaped organelles called Birbeck granules, and its expression is required for the formation of Birbeck granules (1,5). Langerin recognizes carbohydrate motifs on the surface of pathogens, resulting in endocytosis of the pathogen into Birbeck granules, degradation of the pathogen, and antigen presentation to T cells (6-8).
