CD8a antibodies, mouse

CD8a antibodies, mouse

Clone: REA601 | Dilution: 1:10
Clone REA601 is specific for the mouse CD8a antigen, also known as LY-2 or T8, which is expressed on cytotoxic T cells and at lower levels on subpopulations of dendritic cells and TCRγ/δ
cells. CD8a is further detected on most thymocytes (CD4
and CD4
thymocytes). Cytotoxic T cells and thymocytes express CD8a as heterodimer with CD8b, whereas dendritic cells and TCRγ/δ
cells express a CD8a/CD8a homodimer. It mediates efficient cell-cell interactions within the immune system.
Additional information: Clone REA601 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 other known clones.
