FC - Quality tested

Application Notes:

Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: in vitro costimulation of T and NK cells1, in vitro blocking of allogeneic mixed leukocyte response and inhibition of MHC-unrestricted CTL cytotoxicity, and in vitro induction of thymocyte differentiation.

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 ≤ 1.0 µg per 106 cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

* Alexa Fluor® 488 has a maximum emission of 519 nm when it is excited at 488 nm.

C57BL/6 mouse splenocytes stained with E18 Alexa Fluor® 488



Description:

CD28 is a 44 kD glycoprotein, also known as Tp44 or T44. It is a member of the Ig superfamily, expressed on thymocytes, most peripheral T cells, and NK cells. In association with CD80 (B7-1) and CD86 (B7-2), CD28 acts as the second signal for T and NK cell activation and proliferation. The E18 antibody blocks the binding of 37.51 antibody to CD28 and costimulates T cell activation and proliferation.

Other Names: Tp44, T44
Structure: Ig superfamily, 44 kD
Distribution: Thymocytes, CD4+, CD8+ peripheral T cells, NK cells
Function: Costimulates T and NK cells
Ligand Receptor: CD80 (B7-1), CD86 (B7-2)
