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 ≤0.5 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Mouse dendritic epidermal cell line

Mouse dendritic epidermal cell line 7-17 were stained with anti-mouse TCR Vγ3 (clone 536) APC (filled histogram) or hamster IgG APC isotype control (open histogram).


Vγ3+ T cells are the predominant γδ TCR-bearing cells in early fetal thymus.  The majority of CD3+ cells in 14-day fetal thymus express Vγ3.   Vγ3 is also expressed on Thy-1+ dendritic epidermal cells (Thy-1+ DECs).  Cells that express Vγ3 are not significantly detectable in adult lymphoid organs.  It has been reported that Lck and Fyn, two Src family kinases, are required for the development of Vγ3+ T cells.

Other Names: Vγ3 T-cell receptor, T cell receptor gamma 3
Structure: A member of Ig superfamily, heterodimerized with δ TCR chain and associated with CD3 complex.
Distribution: Dendritic epidermal T cells (DECs) and fetal murine thymocytes.
Function: Antigen recognition
Ligand Receptor: Antigens
