CD8a, APC, clone: 53-6.7, eBioscience™
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Life Technologies LS17008181
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: The 53-6.7 monoclonal antibody reacts with the mouse CD8a molecule. CD8a is an approximately 32-34kDa cell surface receptor expressed either as a heterodimer with the CD8 beta chain (CD8 alpha beta) or as a homodimer (CD8 alpha alpha). A majority of thymocytes and a subpopulation of mature alpha beta TCR T cells express CD8 alpha beta while gamma delta TCR T cells, a subpopulation of intestinal intraepithelial lymphocytes (IELs) and dendritic cells express CD8 alpha alpha. CD8 binds to MHC class I and through its association with protein tyrosine kinase p56lck plays a role in T cell development and activation of mature T cells.Applications Reported: The 53-6.7 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.Applications Tested: The 53-6.7 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse thymocyte or splenocyte suspensions. This can be used at less than or equal to 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. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.Excitation: 633-647 nm; Emission: 660 nm; Laser: Red Laser.Filtration: 0.2μm post-manufacturing filtered.
