Clone 53-6-7
Isotype IgG2a
Characteristics The antibody detects: chain of the murine CD8 heterodimer, Mr 32-34 kDa
The 53-6.7 monoclonal antibody also blocks allogeneic help specific for class I MHC antigens and T cell responses to IL-2.
Alternative Name CD8a/Ly-2 (CD8A Antibody Abstract)
Background In the mouse, CD8 exists in two forms: (i) a CD8 heterodimer composed of an chain (CD8/Lyt-2) and a chain (CD8/Lyt-3), and (ii) a homodimer of two chains. The heterodimer is found on the surface of essentially all thymocytes and the suppressor/cytotoxic subpopulation of mature T lymphocytes. Subsets of intestinal intraepithelial lymphocytes express CD8 without CD8. It has been suggested that CD8+- T cells mature extrathymically, while development of the CD8++ population of T cells is thymus-dependent. CD8 acts as a coreceptor with MHC Class I-restricted T cell receptors in antigen recognition and positive selection of MHC class I-restricted CD8+ T cells. In vivo and in vitro treatment with the 53-6.7 monoclonal antibody effectively depletes CD8+ cells.
Application Notes Working Dilution:
FACS: 2 µg/10^6 cells
Representative data are included in this product insert.

Each laboratory should determine an optimum working titer for use in its particular application. Other applications have not been tested but use in such assays should not necessarily be excluded.

In vivo and in vitro depletion of CD8a+ cells

Sample Volume 1 mL
Restrictions For Research Use only
Buffer Product is supplied as 0.5 mg or 0.1 mg in 1.0 mL of PBS / NaN3.
Preservative Sodium azide
Precaution of Use WARNING: Reagents contain sodium azide. Sodium azide is very toxic if ingested or inhaled. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, or clothing. Wear eye or face protection when handling. If skin or eye contact occurs, wash with copious amounts of water. If ingested or inhaled, contact a physician immediately. Sodium azide yields toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide-containing compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in lead or copper plumbing.
Handling Advice Protect conjugated products from light.
Each reagent is stable for the period shown on the bottle label if stored as directed.
Storage 4 °C
