Monoclonal mouse IgG2a antibody against dog CD20

Anti-dCD20c1-mIgG2a is a mouse monoclonal antibody that specifically targets dog CD20 (dCD20).
In flow cytometry applications, this antibody has exhibited weak cross-reactivity with human CD20. Reactivity with other species has not been tested.

Anti-dCD20c1-mIgG2a was generated by DNA immunization.

This antibody has been screened for the ability to bind dCD20 and induce complement-dependent cytotoxicity (CDC). It is produced by hybridoma cells and purified by affinity chromatography with protein A.

This antibody is not suitable for immunohistochemical staining.

CD20 is a transmembrane phosphoprotein that is expressed on the surface of B lymphocytes. The CD20 antigen is present on both resting and activated B lymphocytes but is lost prior to differentiation into plasma cells.

As CD20 expression is restricted to B cells, this antigen is a useful marker or target for B-cell lymphomas [1]. Studies demonstrate that the expression of CD20 correlates with B-cell lymphoma in dogs [2]. In human medicine, an anti-human CD20 monoclonal antibody (Rituximab) has been approved by the FDA to treat B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma resistant to other chemotherapy regimens.

This antibody was tested for B-cell binding and depletion in canine B-cells ex vivo; however, this human therapeutic is not able to bind or deplete canine B-cells [3, 4]. Thus, there is a need for specific antibodies directed against dog CD20. Such antibodies can be used to investigate CD20 as a therapeutic target in canine lymphoma.
