BJAB cells expressing green fluorescence protein (GFP)-Membrane-Spanning 4-Domains, Subfamily A, Member 8B (MS4A8B).
MS4A (membrane-spanning 4-domain family, subfamily A) is a large family of proteins that includes at least 26 members in mouse and humans. Flanked by amino- and carboxyl- cytoplasmic regions, MS4A family members contain four highly conserved transmembrane domains connected by short extracellular and cytoplasmic loops. CD20, the most well-known MS4A family member, is a B-cell-specific molecule associated with the B cell antigen receptor and functions in receptor-activated calcium influx. Several other MS4A family members are likely to be components of oligomeric cell surface complexes involved in signal transduction in diverse cell lineages.
