FC - Quality tested

Application Notes:

Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: immunoprecipitation1, blocking1 of allogeneic responses, and immunohistochemical staining of acetone-fixed frozen sections.

Recommended Usage: Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is ≤0.25 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Description: CD8a is a 32 kD glycoprotein also known as T8, Lyt2, Ly-2, and CD8α. CD8a is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily expressed on most thymocytes, subset of mature T cells, most NK cells, macrophages, and some activated CD4+ T cells (not resting). CD8a forms heterodimers with the CD8β chain (CD8b) on the surface of most thymocytes, while mature peripheral T lymphocytes express almost exclusively the CD8 αβ heterodimer. Intestinal intraepithelial lymphocytes express CD8a without CD8b. CD8 is an antigen co-receptor on T cells that interacts with MHC class I on antigen-presenting cells or epithelial cells. CD8 participates in T cell activation through its association with the T cell receptor complex and protein tyrosine kinase lck (p56lck).
Other Names: CD8a, T8, Leu-8, Ly-2, Lyt2
Structure: Ig superfamily, CD8α chain
Distribution: Most thymocytes, T cell subset; activated CD4+ T cells (not resting), most NK cells and intestinal intraepithelial cells express the CD8α chain without the CD8β chain
Function: Co-receptor for TCR
Ligand Receptor: MHC class I molecule
