CD25 is a 55 kD glycoprotein also known as IL-2 receptor α chain. It is broadly expressed on activated T and B cells, a subset of thymic and splenic dendritic cells, and intestinal epithelial cells in the rat. IL-2 is a critical cytokine involved in lymphocyte proliferation and clonal expansion. IL-2 signaling requires the high affinity IL-2 receptor composed of IL-2 receptor chains α, β, and γ. The OX-39 antibody weakly inhibits IL-2 binding to the IL-2 receptor and has been shown to block some IL-2 mediated responses in vitro.

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 ≤ 0.25 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Application Notes

Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: immunohistochemistryof acetone-fixed frozen sections1, immunoprecipitation1, weakly blocks IL-2 binding1, 2, 3, and blocks IL-2 induced epithelial cell migration3.
