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 ≤0.06 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

T cell receptor Vβ12 (TCR Vβ12) is a variant of TCR β chain and, along with TCR α chain, forms the TCR heterodimer. In association with the CD3 complex, TCR α/β is responsible for antigen recognition through interaction with MHC-peptide complex to initiate the T cell-mediated immune responses. The MR11-1 antibody reacts with the Vβ12 TCR of mice bearing the b haplotype. It has been reported that Mtv-8 and Mtv-9 cause clonally deletion of Vβ12+ T cells.

Other Names: Vβ12 T-cell receptor, T cell receptor beta 12
Structure: Member of the immunoglobulin superfamily, Vβ12 is a variant of the TCR β chain which associates with the TCR α chain to form the TCR heterodimer
Distribution: subset of TCR αβ+ T cells
Function: Recognition of peptides presented in the MHC molecules, responsible for T cell mediated immune responses
