Mouse CD301, also known as macrophage galactose-type C-type lectin, has two homologue genes, CD301a (MGL1) and CD301b (MGL2), while there is only one MGL in human and rat.  Mouse CD301a and CD301b are ~42 kD type II transmembrane glycoproteins containing a cytoplasmic domain, a transmembrane domain, a neck domain, and a carbohydrate recognition domain (CRD) within each molecule. CD301a is mainly expressed on a subset of macrophages and immature dendritic cells (DCs). CD301b is mainly found on conventional DCs. Although CD301a and CD301b share high amino acid sequence homology (92% for the intact sequence and 80% for the CRD), they display different carbohydrate specificities. CD301a was found to be highly specific for Lewis X and Lewis A structures, whereas CD301b, more similar to human MGL, recognizes N-actetylgalactosamine (GalNAc) and galactose, including the O-linked Tn-antigen, TF-antigen, and core 2.  So far, CD301a has been reported to be involved in recognition and  endocytosis of glycoproteins with terminal Gal/GalNAc moieties. This contributes to defense against tumor cell metastasis, tissue remodeling, and clearance of apoptotic cells in embryos. CD301b is involved in the internalization of soluble polyacrylamide polymers (PAA) with α-GalNAc residues (GalNAc-PAA) in bone marrow derived DCs.

PG - Quality tested

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis and the oligomer sequence is confirmed by sequencing. For Proteogenomics TotalSeq™-A analysis, the suggested use of this reagent is ≤ 1.0 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

To maximize performance, centrifuge the antibody dilution (1.0 µg of antibody in 100 µl of staining buffer for every 1 million cells) before adding to the cells at 14,000xg at 2 - 8°C for 10 minutes. Carefully pipette out the liquid avoiding the bottom of the tube and add to the cell suspension.

Additional Product Notes

TotalSeq™ reagents are designed to profile protein expression at a single cell level following an optimized protocol similar to the CITE-seq workflow. A compatible single cell device (e.g. 10x Genomics Chromium System and Reagents) and sequencer (e.g. Illumina analyzers) are required. Please contact technical support for more information, or visit

The TotalSeq™-A barcode sequence associated with clone URA-1 is CTTGCCTTGCGATTT.

The flanking sequences are CCTTGGCACCCGAGAATTCCA, and the capture sequence, BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA*A*A, B represents either C, G, or T, and * indicates a phosphorothioated bond, to prevent nuclease degradation.

The full oligomer sequence for this product, with the specific barcode in brackets is CCTTGGCACCCGAGAATTCCA [CTTGCCTTGCGATTT]BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA*A*A.

Can I an isotype control with a lambda light chain be substituted with an isotype control with a kappa light chain for flow cytometry?

Yes, you can since kappa and lambda represent light chains which don't contribute to the background staining.
