|Product Specification Sheet|
Human CD83 is a 40-50 kDa member of the Siglec (or sialic-acid-binding immunoglobulin-like lectin) family of transmembrane proteins. CD83 is a primary marker for dendritic cells. It is also found on B cells, neutrophils, monocytes and macrophages. Except for dendritic cells, CD83 expression is often transient. CD83 binds to sialic acids on target cells. Membrane CD83 promotes T cell proliferation, particularly of CD8+ cytotoxic T cells. Soluble CD83 is immunosuppressive and blocks T cell activation. On monocytes, CD83 is suggested to drive monocytes into a fibrocyte phenotype. A lack of membrane-expressed CD83 leads to an unusual IL-4/ IL-10 producing CD4+ T cell phenotype.
