CD16a antigens general information

CD16a Gene ID 14131
CD16a Official Full Name Fc receptor, IgG, low affinity III
CD16a Alias FcγRIIIA, FCGR3A, FCG3, FCGR3, IGFR3
CD16a Cellular Expression T; NK; Dendritic; Granulocyte; Macrophage
CD16a Ligand/Receptor/Association aggregated IgG, IgG-Ag complex
CD16a Function Low affinity Fc receptor. Mediates phagocytosis and antibody-dependent T-cell-mediated cytotoxicity
CD16a Summary CD16 is a low affinity Fc receptor. It is a cluster of differentiation molecule found on the surface of natural killer cells, neutrophil polymorphonuclear leukocytes, monocytes and macrophages.[1] It can be used to isolate populations of these cells by antibodies directed towards CD16, using fluorescent-activated cell sorting or magnetic-activated cell sorting
