Pan T Cell MicroBeads, rat

Pan T Cell MicroBeads, rat

PanT Cell MicroBeads have been developed for the positive selection or depletion of rat T cells from blood, lymphoid organs, and cell suspensions of non-lymphoid tissues, such as lung or ovary.

Background information

The OX52 surface antigen recognized by the Pan T Cell MicroBeads is expressed in a lineage-specific manner on thymocytes and T cells. T cells expressing T cell receptor (TCR) α/β as well as TCRγ/δ are recognized. The OX52 antigen is expressed by approximately 1% of bone marrow cells, 99% of thymocytes, 60% of leukocytes in thoracic duct, 60% of lymph node cells, and 30% of splenocytes. The antigen is also weakly expressed on NK cells, which can be distinguished from T cells due to their lack of CD3 or CD5 expression.

Downstream applications

T cells isolated with Pan T Cell MicroBeads can be used for
in vitro
in vivo
studies on T cell migration and differentiation in the context of autoimmune disease or alloreactivity. They were also used in adoptive transfer experiments to study autoimmunity or induction of tolerance after xenogeneic thymus transplantation.
