FC - Quality tested

Application Notes:

Additional reported applications (for relevant formats) include:  Western blotting1.

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.

C57BL/6 mouse splenocytes were stimulated

C57BL/6 mouse splenocytes were stimulated (overnight) with immobilized TCR-β (clone H57-597), then stained with CD8 PE and CD355 (clone 11-5/CRTAM) APC (top) or rat IgG2a, κ APC isotype control (bottom).


Class-I MHC-restricted T-cell associated molecule (CRTAM), designated as CD355, is an Ig domain like type I transmembrane receptor, which belongs to the nectin family. In the immune system, CRTAM is strictly expressed on activated NK cells and activated CD8-positive T cells. By binding its ligand Nectin-like molecule 2 (Necl2), CRTAM plays an important role in mediating cell adhesion and migration.

Other Names: Class I-restricted T cell-associated molecule
Structure: 75 kD homodimer, nectin family, Ig superfamily
