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 ≤0.125 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

C57BL/6 mouse splenocytes were stained

C57BL/6 mouse splenocytes were stained with CD3 PE and TCR Vγ2 (clone UC3-10A6) APC (top) or Armenian hamster IgG APC isotype control (bottom).


T cell receptor (TCR) Vγ2 bearing T lymphocytes make up a significant proportion of γδ TCR cells in late fetal and adult peripheral lymphoid tissues. TCR γδ T cells may play a role in immunological surveillance for stress-induced self-antigens. The frequency of Vγ2 expression in different strains varied from 12% to 54% in the TCR γδ repertoire. Variations in the levels of Vγ2+ cells are not associated with MHC haplotype. High Vγ2 expression is influenced by the TCR-δ locus.  Expanding Vγ2+ TCRγδ cells in B6 mice overwhelmingly use a Vδ7+ δ chain except in the DBA/2 strain.

Other Names: Vγ2 T-cell receptor, T cell receptor gamma 2
Structure: A member of Ig superfamily, associated with TCR δ chain and CD3 complex.
Distribution: T cell subset in fetal and adult peripheral lymphoid tissues and thymus.
Function: Might play a role in a previously unrecognized form of immunological surveillance for stress-induced self-antigens.
Ligand Receptor: Antigens
