This 6D3 monoclonal antibody reacts with B lymphocyte-induced maturation protein-1 (Blimp-1), a transcriptional repressor expressed in B and T cells. This approximately 90kDa protein contains five consecutive Kruppel-like zinc finger domains by which it binds DNA. In B cells, Blimp-1 promotes terminal differentiation into antibody-secreting plasma cells during a primary immune response. In addition, Blimp-1 has been implicated in germinal center formation in response to T-dependent and T-independent antigens, as well as in some diffuse large B cell lymphomas. Expressed in CD4+ and CD8+ effector/memory T cells and FoxP3+ regulatory T cells, reports have suggested possible roles for Blimp-1 in T cell homeostasis and suppression of IL-2 production. Moreover, by suppressing Th1 differentiation, Blimp-1 plays a role in T helper cell differentiation. Finally, Blimp-1 has been demonstrated to play a significant role in the terminal differentiation of effector and effector memory CD8+ T cells during viral infection.
