FC - Quality tested

Application Notes:

Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: induction of T cell proliferation1, blocking in vitro cytolysis1, and in vivo blocking of syngeneic T cell tumor growth2.

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.

Vβ6 T cell receptor (TCR Vβ6) 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 in the MHC-Peptide complex and the initiation of the T cell-mediated immune responses. Murine Vβ6 cells recognize the Mtv-7, Mls-1, and rabies superantigens.

Other Names: T cell receptor beta 6
Structure: Member of the immunoglobulin superfamily, Vβ6 is a variant of the TCR β chain which associates with the TCR α chain to form the TCR heterodimer.
Distribution: Expressed on a subset of TCR αβ+ T cells.
Function: Recognition of peptides presented in the MHC molecules, responsible for T cell mediated immune responses.
Ligand Receptor: MHC-Peptide complex
