CD8a Rat anti-Canine, Super Bright 436, Clone: YCATE55.9, eBioscience™
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Brand: Invitrogen 62-5080-41
Additional Details : Weight : 0.01000kg
Description: This YCATE55.9 monoclonal antibody reacts with canine CD8 alpha. This cell surface receptor is expressed either as a heterodimer with the CD8 beta chain (CD8 alpha/beta) or as a homodimer (CD8 alpha/alpha). In dogs, CD8 alpha is expressed on thymocytes, a subset of mature T cells, NK cells, and intestinal intraepithelial lymphocytes (IELs). CD8 binds to MHC class I and plays a role in thymocyte development and mature T cell activation. This monoclonal antibody has been reported to inhibit cytotoxic T cell generation and function in vitro. In addition, this antibody has been reported to be immunosuppressive in vivo. Applications Reported: This YCATE55.9 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This YCATE55.9 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal canine peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 μL (1.0 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. Super Bright 436 can be excited with the violet laser line (405 nm) and emits at 436 nm. We recommend using a 450/50 bandpass filter, or equivalent. Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome.When using two or more Super Bright dye-conjugated antibodies in a staining panel, it is recommended to use Super Bright Complete Staining Buffer (Product No. SB-4401) to minimize any non-specific polymer interactions. Please refer to the datasheet for Super Bright Staining Buffer for more information. Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (Product No. 00-8222) (100 μL of cell sample + 100 μL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (Product No. 00-5333) for up to 3 days in the dark at 4°C with minimal impact on brightness and FRET efficiency/compensation. Some generalizations regarding fluorophore performance after fixation can be made, but clone specific performance should be determined empirically. Excitation: 405 nm; Emission: 436 nm; Laser: Violet Laser Super Bright Polymer Dyes are sold under license from Becton, Dickinson and Company. CD8 molecule is composed of two chains termed alpha and beta. CD8 is found on a T cell subset of normal cytotoxic / suppressor cells which make up approximately 20 to 35 % of human peripheral blood lymphocytes. The CD8 antigen is also detected on natural killer cells, 80% of thymocytes, on a subpopulation of 30% of peripheral blood null cells and 15 to 30% of bone marrow cells.
