DescriptionDescription: The 7E.17G9 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse ICOS (Inducible COStimulatory molecule), a T cell specific molecule and a third member of the CD28/CTLA-4 family. A homodimer of 47-57 kDa, ICOS is expressed on activated T cells, has potent costimulatory activity for T cell activation and proliferation and is required for humoral immune response. ICOS binds to its ligand on activated APC including B cells called B7h/B7RP-1 and is thought to play a protective role in inflammatory autoimmune diseases. ICOS may be involved in the development of Th2 cells.Applications Reported: 7E.17G9 has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis and for inhibition of ligand binding in functional assays.Applications Tested: The 7E.17G9 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of unstimulated and Con A activated (3 day) mouse splenocytes and can be used at less than or equal to 0.125 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. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.Endotoxin: Less than 0.001 ng/ug antibody as determined by the LAL assay.Storage and handling: Use in a sterile environment.Filtration: 0.2μm post-manufacturing filtered.Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE.Endotoxin Level: Less than 0.001 ng/μg antibody, as determined by LAL assay.Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC.
