DescriptionDescription: The eBioRDR5 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD127 (Interleukin-7 Receptor alpha). CD127 complexes with CD132, also known as the common gamma chain (gamma c), to form the multi-functional IL-7 receptor (IL-7R). CD127 is a type I glycoprotein with a molecular weight of 75-80kDa and is expressed by immature B cells through the early pre-B stage, by thymocytes during several stages of their development, and on most mature T cells, with transient down-regulation upon activation. Binding of IL-7 results in signal transduction which occurs through several tyrosine kinase pathways including the Jak/STAT pathway. IL-7 is indispensible for the development of lymphocytes, and the control of homeostatic proliferation of T-cells in the periphery. In addition, IL-7R signaling is know to be involved in the regulation of T cell receptor (TCR) locus rearrangement in gamma delta T cells.Interestingly, recently it has been demonstrated that CD127 expression is down-regulated on CD4+CD25+ regulatory T cells (T regs). While the co-expression of CD4 and CD25 has become widely used as an indicator of T regs, this method of identification may also include cells without suppressive activity. It has clearly been shown that CD4+CD25+ cells that have down-regulated the expression of CD127 are significantly more highly-enriched for the regulatory T population, as defined by expression of the T reg-specific transcription factor Foxp3 and the suppressive activity of these cells, in vitro.Binding of the eBioRDR5 monoclonal antibody to PBMCs is blocked by pre-incubation of the cells with recombinant human IL-7 (cat. 14-8079).Applications Reported: This eBioRDR5 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.Applications Tested: This eBioRDR5 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 μL (0.06 μg) per test. A test is defined as the amount (μg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 μL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. eFluor® 660 is a replacement for Alexa Fluor® 647. eFluor® 660 emits at 659 nm and is excited with the red laser (633 nm). Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochome.Excitation: 633-647 nm; Emission: 668 nm; Laser: Red Laser.Filtration: 0.2μm post-manufacturing filtered.
