CD278 (ICOS) Rat anti-Mouse, FITC, Clone: 7E.17G9, eBioscience™
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Life Technologies LS11994280
Description: The 7E.17G9 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse ICOS (Inducible COStimulatory molecule), a T cell specific molecule and a third member of the CD28/CTLA-4 family. A homodimer of 47-57 kDa, ICOS is expressed on activated T cells, has potent costimulatory activity for T cell activation and proliferation and is required for humoral immune response. ICOS binds to its ligand on activated APC including B cells called B7h/B7RP-1 and is thought to play a protective role in inflammatory autoimmune diseases. ICOS may be involved in the development of Th2 cells. Applications Reported: This 7E.17G9 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This 7E.17G9 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of Con A-stimulated mouse splenocytes. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.25 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. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest. Excitation: 488 nm; Emission: 520 nm; Laser: Blue Laser. Filtration: 0.2 μm post-manufacturing filtered.CD278 belongs to the CD28 and CTLA-4 cell-surface receptor family and is highly expressed in activated T-cells. It is essential both for efficient interaction between T and B-cells and for normal antibody responses to T-cell dependent antigens. It enhances all basic T-cell responses to a foreign antigen, namely proliferation, secretion of lymphokines, up-regulation of molecules that mediate cell-cell interaction, and effective help for antibody secretion by B-cells.
