Product Details

Clone: HIT8a (See other available formats)
Isotype: Mouse IgG1, κ
Isotype Control:Alexa Fluor® 488 Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Ctrl (FC)
Workshop
Number:
V CD08.10
Reactivity: Human, Cross-Reactivity: Chimpanzee, Marmoset
Formulation: Phosphate-buffered solution, pH 7.2, containing 0.09% sodium azide and 0.2% (w/v) BSA (origin USA).
Preparation: The antibody was purified by affinity chromatography, and conjugated with Alexa Fluor® 488 under optimal conditions.
Storage & Handling: The antibody solution should be stored undiluted between 2°C and 8°C, and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
Application: FC - Quality tested
Recommended Usage: Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is 5 µl per million cells or 5 µl per 100 µl of whole blood. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Antigen Details

Description: CD8a is a 32-34 kD type I glycoprotein. It forms a homodimer (CD8a/a) or heterodimer (CD8a/b) with CD8b. CD8, also known as T8 and Leu2, is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily found on the majority of thymocytes, a subset of peripheral blood T cells, and NK cells (which express almost exclusively CD8a homodimers). CD8 acts as a co-receptor with MHC class I-restricted T cell receptors in antigen recognition and T cell activation and has been shown to play a role in thymic differentiation. Two domains in CD8a are important for function: the extracellular IgSF domain binds the α3 domain of MHC class I and the cytoplasmic CXCP motif binds the tyrosine kinase p56 Lck.
Other Names: T8, Leu2
Structure: Ig superfamily, homodimer or heterodimer with CD8β, 32-34 kD
Distribution: Majority of thymocytes, T cell subset, NK cells
Function: MHC class I co-receptor, thymic differentiation, T cell activation
Ligand Receptor: MHC Class I molecules
