CD90.2 MicroBeads, mouse

CD90.2 MicroBeads, mouse

CD90.2 MicroBeads were developed for positive selection or depletion of mouse T cells from single-cell suspensions of lymphoid and non-lymphoid tissues or from peripheral blood.
This product will be discontinued soon. An updated product is available: CD90.2 MicroBeads, mouse (# 130-121-278).

Background information

The mouse CD90.2 alloantigen, also known as Thy1.2, is a pan T cell marker for the most common inbred mouse strains. These strains include BALB/c, DBA, CBA/J, C3H, C57BL/6, NZB/-, S3L and others. CD90.2 is expressed on thymocytes, peripheral T cells, on some intraepithelial T cells, and at lower levels on early hematopoietic stem cells in bone marrow.
The mouse CD90.2 antibody does not cross-react with CD90.1 (Thy1.1).

Downstream applications

T cells isolated with CD90.2 MicroBeads were used to analyze cytokine expression in a mouse model of lung fibrosis
or after adoptive transfer of T cells from wild type and knock-out mice into immunodeficient mice.
Furthermore, CD90.2 MicroBeads were used for the isolation of tumor-infiltrating T cells to evaluate their immunotherapeutic potential
or functional properties.


For positive selection: MS, LS, XS, or autoMACS
Columns. For depletion: LD, D, or autoMACS Columns.
