1101080 100 µg $190.00       
Clone: 17A2
Isotype: Rat IgG2b, κ
Reactivity: Mouse
Immunogen: γδTCR-positive T-T hybridoma D1
Formulation: Phosphate-buffered solution, pH 7.2, containing 0.09% sodium azide.
Preparation: The antibody was purified by affinity chromatography, and conjugated with Alexa Fluor® 700 under optimal conditions.
Concentration: 0.5 mg/ml
Storage & Handling: The CD3 antibody solution should be stored undiluted between 2°C and 8°C, and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
Application:

FC - Quality tested

Application Notes:

The 17A2 antibody recognizes ε/γ (but not ε/δ) of the CD3 complex. The 17A2 antibody can induce T cell activation and has been reported to deplete CD3+ cells in vivo. Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: immunoprecipitation1, complement-mediated cytotoxicity1,3, immunohistochemical staining of acetone-fixed frozen sections1,4, in vitro stimulation of T cells1 and depletion of CD3+ cells in vivo2.

Recommended Usage:

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. The suggested use of this reagent is ≤1.0 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume. It is highly recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

* Alexa Fluor® 700 has a maximum emission of 719 nm when it is excited at 633 nm / 635 nm. Prior to using Alexa Fluor® 700 conjugate for flow cytometric analysis, please verify your flow cytometer's capability of exciting and detecting the fluorochrome.

C57BL/6 mouse splenocytes stained with 17A2 Alexa Fluor® 700



Description:

CD3, also known as T3, is a member of the Ig superfamily and primarily expressed on T cells, NK-T cells, and at different levels on thymocytes during T cell differentiation. CD3 is composed of CD3ε, δ, γ and ζ chains. It forms a TCR complex by associating with TCR α/β or γ/δ chains. CD3 plays a critical role in TCR signal transduction, T cell activation, and antigen recognition by binding the peptide/MHC antigen complex.

Other Names: T cell antigen receptor complex, T3
Structure: Ig superfamily, CD3/TCR, 20 kD
Distribution: Thymocytes (differentiation dependent), mature T cells, NK-T cells
Function: Antigen recognition, TCR signal transduction, T cell activation
Ligand Receptor: Peptide antigen/MHC-complex
