Monoclonale antibodies: Anti-human/anti-mouse C5a-Rezeptor

Scientists at the Georg-August-University Göttingen produced different monoclonal antibodies directed against the rat CD88 cell surface receptor, also known as C5aR. C5aR functions as a receptor for the C5a fragment of the complement factor C5.These antibodies can be used to identify C5aR in tissue or cultured cells.

CD88 is expressed by cells of the myeloid lineage such as monocytes and macrophages.
