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 ≤0.25 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

C57Bl/6 splenocytes were stained with

C57Bl/6 splenocytes were stained with CD3 (clone 145-2C11) APC and purified anti-mouse CD6 (clone OX-129, top) or rat IgG2a, κ isotype control (bottom), followed by anti-rat IgG PE.


CD6, a 100 kD monomeric T cell surface glycoprotein, is a member of the scavenger receptor cysteine-rich protein superfamily. It is expressed on mouse thymocytes and splenic T cells and neurons, but not on splenic B cells. CD6 has a long cytoplasmic tail in mice, with two proline-rich domains that interact with the -SH3 domain binding sequence. CD6 binding to its ligand, CD166 (ALCAM), serves as a costimulatory molecule through its interaction with SLP-76. CD6 mediated signaling may contribute to thymocyte survival and functional avidity in mice and men.
