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 ≤0.25 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

TCR is a heterodimer composed of alpha and beta chains or gamma and delta chains. TCR Vα elements expression is largely independent of MHC haplotype. It is likely that the Vαs interact preferentially with conserved region of class I or class II molecules. RR3-16 antibody reacts with the Vα3.2 T-cell receptor (TCR) of mice having the b (e.g., C57BL/6) and c (e.g.,SJL, NOD) haplotypes, but not with the strains having the a ( Balb/c) or d (DBA/2) haplotype. Vα3.2 TCR is preferentially expressed by CD8+ T cells.

Other Names: Vκ 3.2[b,c] TCR [va3.2]
Distribution: subset of T cells.
Function: In combination of V β, Vκ3.2 recognizes MHC/peptide complex on the antigen-presenting cells.
Ligand Receptor: TCR recognizes MHC/peptide complex.
