Code : Z2
Additional Details : Weight : 0.25000kg
DescriptionDescription: The monoclonal antibody 54 recognizes mouse Tim-4 (T cell, Ig, mucin). Unlike other Tim family members, Tim-4 is not expressed on T lymphocytes but rather found on antigen presenting cells such as lymphoid and myeloid DC's and macrophages. Tim-4 has been shown to interact with Tim-1 thereby suggesting a role of Tim-4 in the balance of Th1/Th2 regulation. Additionally Tim-4 has been shown to be a receptor for phosphatidylserine and may play a role in engulfment of apoptotic cells. Expression is found on a subset of CD11c+ splenic cells.Applications Reported: This 54 (RMT4-54) antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.Applications Tested: This 54 (RMT4-54) antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse splenocytes. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.25 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.Please consider the use of a viability dye like 7-AAD (cat 00-6993) when staining for Tim4.Excitation: 488-561 nm; Emission: 578 nm; Laser: Blue Laser, Green Laser, Yellow-Green Laser.Filtration: 0.2μm post-manufacturing filtered.
