  • Specification
  • Product Description:
  • Mouse monoclonal antibody raised against native CD8.
  • Immunogen:
  • Native purified CD8 from Crude thymus membrane fraction.
  • Host:
  • Mouse
  • Reactivity:
  • Human
  • Specificity:
  • This antibody recognizes a conformationally-dependent epitope of CD8, a cell surface glycoprotein found on most cytotoxic T lymphocytes that mediates efficient cell-cell interactions within the immune system. CD8 is a disulfide-linked dimer and exists as a CD8 alpha/alpha homodimer or CD8 alpha/beta heterodimer (each monomer approx. 32-34 KDa).
    This antibody does not react with formaldehyde-fixed cells; negative in Western Blot application.
  • Form:
  • Liquid
  • Conjugation:
  • PerCP
  • Isotype:
  • IgG2a
  • Recommend Usage:
  • Flow Cytometry (10 ul in human blood cells 100 ul in whole blood or 106 cells in a suspension)
    The optimal working dilution should be determined by the end user.
  • Storage Buffer:
  • In PBS (0.2% BSA, 0.09% sodium azide)
  • Storage Instruction:
  • Store in the dark at 4°C. Do not freeze.
    Avoid prolonged exposure to light.
    Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
  • Note:
  • This product contains sodium azide: a POISONOUS AND HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCE which should be handled by trained staff only.

  • Gene Name:
  • CD8A
  • Gene Alias:
  • CD8,Leu2,MAL,p32
  • Gene Description:
  • CD8a molecule
  • Gene Summary:
  • The CD8 antigen is a cell surface glycoprotein found on most cytotoxic T lymphocytes that mediates efficient cell-cell interactions within the immune system. The CD8 antigen acts as a corepressor with the T-cell receptor on the T lymphocyte to recognize antigens displayed by an antigen presenting cell (APC) in the context of class I MHC molecules. The coreceptor functions as either a homodimer composed of two alpha chains, or as a heterodimer composed of one alpha and one beta chain. Both alpha and beta chains share significant homology to immunoglobulin variable light chains. This gene encodes the CD8 alpha chain isoforms. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq

  • Gene Summary:
  • The CD8 antigen is a cell surface glycoprotein found on most cytotoxic T lymphocytes that mediates efficient cell-cell interactions within the immune system. The CD8 antigen, acting as a coreceptor, and the T-cell receptor on the T lymphocyte recognize antigen displayed by an antigen presenting cell (APC) in the context of class I MHC molecules. The functional coreceptor is either a homodimer composed of two alpha chains, or a heterodimer composed of one alpha and one beta chain. Both alpha and beta chains share significant homology to immunoglobulin variable light chains. This gene encodes the CD8 beta chain isoforms. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct membrane associated or secreted isoforms have been described. A pseudogene, also located on chromosome 2, has been identified.
