C8slash144B_PURE_CD8a_Antibody_IHCP_011017
Human paraffin-embedded tonsil tissue slices were prepared with a standard protocol of deparaffination and rehydration. Antigen retrieval was done with Tris-Buffered Saline 1X (1.0M, pH7.4) at 95°C for 40 minutes. Tissue was washed with PBS/ 0.05% Tween20 twice for five minutes and blocked with 5% FBS and 0.2% gelatin for 30 minutes. Then, the tissue was stained with 5 µg/ml of purified anti-human CD8a (clone C8/144B) at 4°C overnight. On the next day, the tissue was washed twice with PBS and stained with goat anti-mouse secondary antibody (clone Poly4053) DyLight™ 488 (green) for two hours at room temperature. The nuclei were counter staining with DAPI (blue). The image was captured with a 10X objective.

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.
