Technical Data
CD8 (Leu2 T lymphocyte antigen, MAL, OKT8 T Cell antigen, p32, T cell antigen Leu2, T cell surface glycoprotein CD8 alpha, Suppressor/Cytotoxic T cell) (FITC)
CD8 is a 32kD transmembrane glycoprotein expressed as either a CD8alpha/alpha homodimer or CD8alpha/beta heterodimer. It is expressed on the “cytotoxic/suppressor” subpopulation of peripheral T cells. CD8 functions primarily as a coreceptor with MHC Class I-restricted TCR’s in antigen recognition.

Suitable for use in Flow Cytometry, Immunoprecipitation and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Flow Cytometry: 10ul/10e6 cells
Immunohistochemistry: Frozen sections
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4°C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
