DescriptionThe 4SM15 monoclonal antibody reacts with the mouse CD8a molecule. CD8a is an approximately 32-34kDa cell surface receptor expressed either as a heterodimer with the CD8 beta chain (CD8 alpha beta) or as a homodimer (CD8 alpha alpha). A majority of thymocytes and a subpopulation of mature alpha beta TCR T cells express CD8 alpha beta while gamma delta TCR T cells, a subpopulation of intestinal intraepithelial lymphocytes (IELs) and dendritic cells express CD8 alpha alpha. CD8 binds to MHC class I and through its association with protein tyrosine kinase p56lck plays a role in T cell development and activation of mature T cells.
Recent studies have shown the 4SM15 antibody recognizes and binds a non-CD8a epitope in neural tissue. The 4SM15 clone is not recommended for staining of mouse neural tissue. For additional information please contact our technical service (tech@eBioscience.com).
The 4SM15 monoclonal antibody is not recommended for immunohistochemistry of frozen mouse tissue. For detection of mouse CD8a using immunohistochemistry of frozen tissue please refer to alternate product Anti-Mouse CD8a Purified (cat. 14-0081).
