Interleukin-7 is a glycoptorein involved in the regulation of lymphopoiesis. Response of cells to IL7 is dependent on the presence of the interleukin 7 receptor (IL7R); the active receptor is a alpha/gamma chain heterodimer. The gamma(c) chain, which also associates with the interleukin-2 receptor, serves primarily to activate signal transduction by the IL7R complex, while the alpha chain of IL7R determines specific signaling events through its association with cytoplasmic signaling molecules.It has clearly been shown that CD4+CD25+ cells that have down-regulated the expression of CD127 are significantly more highly-enriched for the regulatory T population, as defined by expression of the T reg-specific transcription factor Foxp3 and the suppressive activity of these cells, in vitro. Binding of the eBioRDR5 monoclonal antibody to PBMCs is blocked by pre-incubation of the cells with recombit human IL-7 (cat. 14-8079). Applications Reported: This eBioRDR5 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This eBioRDR5 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 μL (0.125 μg) per test. A test is defined as the amount (μg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 μL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. Excitation: 488 nm; Emission: 520 nm; Laser: Blue Laser. Filtration: 0.2 μm post-manufacturing filtered. CD127 (Interleukin-7, IL-7) is a glycoprotein involved in the regulation of lymphopoiesis. The response of cells to CD127 is dependent on the presence of the interleukin 7 receptor (IL7R); the active receptor is an alpha/gamma chain heterodimer. CD127 consists of an alpha chain and a gamma chain. The gamma(c) chain, which also associates with the interleukin-2 receptor, serves primarily to activate signal transduction by the IL7R complex, while the alpha chain of IL7R determines specific signaling events through its association with cytoplasmic signaling molecules. CD127 promotes the proliferation of precursor B cells, thymocytes, T cell progenitors, and mature CD4+ and CD8+ T cells. The biological effects of IL7 are mediated by the binding of IL7 to the specific cell surface receptor. Diseases associated with CD127 dysfunction include severe combined immunodeficiency and T cell negative/B cell negative/NK positive severe combined immunodeficiency.
