CD207 (C-type lectin domain family 4 member K) is expressed in Langerhans cells which are immature dendritic cells of the epidermis and mucosa. Moreover, CD207 is expressed in several other dendritic cell types including dermal CD103+ DCs and splenic CD8+ DCs. Langerin is localized in the Birbeck granules, the organelles present in the cytoplasm of Langerhans cells and comprised of superimposed and zippered membranes. CD207 is a C-type lectin with mannose binding specificity, and it has been suggested that mannose binding by the CD207 protein leads to internalization of antigen into Birbeck granules thus providing access to a nonclassical antigen-processing pathway.
CD207 produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 273 amino acids (65-328 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 30.9kDa (Migrates at 28-40kDa on SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions).
CD207 is expressed with a 6 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
