This WT31 monoclonal antibody recognizes the human alpha beta T cell receptor (TCR) complexed with the CD3 epsilon chain. Composed of a 44kDa alpha and a 37kDa beta chain, TCR specificity is typically determined by V alpha, J alpha, V beta, D beta, and J beta gene rearrangement. The TCR is often associated with the CD3 complex, which is composed of at least five polypeptides. The TCR/CD3 complex recognizes and binds to major histocompatibility complex-bound antigen presented by antigen presenting cells such as B cells, dendritic cells, and macrophages. These events lead to T cell activation, resulting in cellular signaling and cytokine production.

The WT31 monoclonal antibody has been reported to induce proliferation of resting T cells, as well as inhibit cytotoxic T cell activity. In addition, some antibodies against CD3 partially inhibit alpha beta TCR antibody staining using WT31; clone SK7 (anti-human CD3) is recommended for use in two-color experiments.
