CD8a, PerCP-eFluor™ 710, clone: YCATE55.9, eBioscience™
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Life Technologies LS46508041
CD8 molecule is composed of two chains termed alpha and beta. CD8 is found on a T cell subset of normal cytotoxic / suppressor cells which make up approximately 20 to 35 % of human peripheral blood lymphocytes. The CD8 antigen is also detected on natural killer cells, 80% of thymocytes, on a subpopulation of 30% of peripheral blood null cells and 15 to 30% of bone marrow cells.Description: This YCATE55.9 monoclonal antibody reacts with canine CD8 alpha. This cell surface receptor is expressed either as a heterodimer with the CD8 beta chain (CD8 alpha/beta) or as a homodimer (CD8 alpha/alpha). In dogs, CD8 alpha is expressed on thymocytes, a subset of mature T cells, NK cells, and intestinal intraepithelial lymphocytes (IELs). CD8 binds to MHC class I and plays a role in thymocyte development and mature T cell activation.This monoclonal antibody has been reported to inhibit cytotoxic T cell generation and function in vitro. In addition, this antibody has been reported to be immunosuppressive in vivo.Applications Reported: This YCATE55.9 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.Applications Tested: This YCATE55.9 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal canine peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 μL (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. PerCP-eFluor™ 710 emits at 710 nm and is excited with the blue laser (488 nm); it can be used in place of PerCP-Cyanine5.5. We recommend using a 710/50 bandpass filter, however, the 695/40 bandpass filter is an acceptable alternative. Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome.Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (cat. 00-8222) (100 μL cell sample + 100 μL IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (cat. 00-5333) for up to 3 days in the dark at 4°C with minimal impact on brightness and FRET efficiency/compensation. Some generalizations regarding fluorophore performance after fixation can be made, but clone specific performance should be determined empirically.Excitation: 488 nm; Emission: 710 nm; Laser: Blue Laser.Filtration: 0.2μm post-manufacturing filtered.
