FC - Quality tested

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 million cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

The B20.6 antibody recognizes V beta 2 TCR of all strains tested. V beta 2 bearing T lymphocytes are clonally eliminated in MHC class II I-E expressing mice neonatally infected with MMTV virus through milk feeding.

Other Names: T cell receptor Vβ 2 [vb2]
Structure: TCR has a two chain structure, consisting of alpha and beta chain. It belongs to Ig superfamily.
Distribution: On a subset of T cells
Function: Recognize MHC/peptide complex on the antigen-presenting cells.
Ligand Receptor: TCR recognizes MHC/peptide complex
Interaction: Associate with V alpha and CD3 complex to form TCR complexes expressing on cell surface.
