FC - Quality tested

Application Notes:

Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: in vitro blocking of antigen-induced proliferation of Vβ13+ T cells 1 and in vivo depletion of Vβ13+ T cells1.

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.

Vβ13 T cell receptor (TCR Vβ13) is a variant of TCR β chain that 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 initiation of T cell-mediated immune responses. The most frequently β chains found in the immune response to myelin basic protein (MBP) in B10.PL mice are Vβ13 and Vβ8.2.

Other Names: Vβ13 T-cell receptor, T cell receptor beta 13
Structure: Member of the immunoglobulin superfamily, Vβ13 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 by the MHC molecules, responsible for T cell mediated immune responses.
Ligand Receptor: MHC-Peptide complex
