Anti-TCR Vα7.2 antibodies, human

Anti-TCR Vα7.2 antibodies, human

Clone: REA179 | Dilution: 1:11
Clone REA179 recognizes the TCR chain Vα7.2, which together with Jα33 segment forms the invariant T cell receptor. Human Vα7.2-Jα33 invariant T cells are preferentially localized in the gut and are often termed as mucosal-associated T (MAIT) cells. MAIT cells are restricted to MHC class I like molecules, such as MR1. Further, MAIT cells are suggested to be involved in regulation of immune response at the mucosal surfaces, which are the primary sites for pathogen entry.
Additional information: Clone REA179 displays negligible binding to Fc receptors.

Alternative Names

REAfinity clone is tested against different known clones, in a blocking experiment, to identify whether they recognize completely overlapping (++), partially overlapping (+), or completely different epitopes (-). In a blocking experiment, cells are incubated with an excess of purified unconjugated REAfinity clone followed by staining with conjugated form of the different hybridoma clones.
