Flow Cytometry: CD8 alpha Antibody (53-6.7) [NBP1-49045] - Analysis of fixed murine splenocytes by multiple staining.
This CD8 alpha antibody serves as an effective marker of cytotoxic T lymphocytes by binding to the CD8 co-receptor expressed on the cell surface of cytotoxic T cells, recognizing the topological domain of CD8 alpha. Because this CD8 antibody is made to the alpha chain it will recognize both the CD8 alpha - CD8 beta heterodimer, the most common form, as well as the CD8 alpha - CD8 alpha homodimer. The CD8A gene is also expressed in natural killer cells (NK cells), dendritic cells and cortical thymocytes making the CD8 alpha antibody a potential marker for these cells.

Each lot of this CD8a antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For immunofluorescent staining, the suggested use of this reagent is <0.25 ug/10^6 cells in 100 uL volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application. The 53-6.7 antibody has been reported to block antigen presentation via MHC class I and inhibit T cell responses to IL-2. This antibody has also been used for depletion of CD8a+ cells. Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: immunoprecipitation, in vivo and in vitro cell depletion, inhibition of CD8 T cell proliferation, blocking of cytotoxicity, and immunohistochemical staining of both acetone-fixed frozen sections and zinc-fixed paraffin-embedded sections. Use in ICC/IF was reported in scientific literature. Use in Immunohistochemistry-Paraffin reported in scientific literature (PMID 24565643).

CD8, also known as MAL, p32, Leu2 and T8-T cell antigen is a cell surface glycoprotein found on most cytotoxic T lymphocytes that mediates efficient cell-cell interactions within the immune system. CD8 is a 34kD protein that belongs to the immunoglobulin family and consists of disulfide-linked alpha and beta chains that form the alpha (CD8a)/beta (CD8b) heterodimer and alpha/alpha homodimer. The CD8 alpha/beta heterodimer is expressed on the surface of most thymocytes and a subset of mature TCR alpha/beta T cells. The CD8 antigen acts as a coreceptor with the T-cell receptor on the T lymphocyte to recognize antigens displayed by an antigen presenting cell in the context of class I MHC molecules. The coreceptor functions as either a homodimer composed of two alpha chains or as a heterodimer composed of one alpha and one beta chain. Both alpha and beta chains share significant homology to immunoglobulin variable light chains. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. The 53-6.7 antibody has been reported to block antigen presentation via MHC class I and inhibit T cell responses to IL-2. This antibody has also been used for depletion of CD8a+ cells. Studies from Cambridge with the CD8 alpha antibody have shown 2 different types of tolerance (permanent or reversible) are induced in peripheral T-cells depending on the type of antigen they are exposed to(1). Associated studies with the same subjects used the CD8 alpha antibody to show that a simple monoclonal CD4 and CD8 monoclonal antibody therapy can establish transplantation tolerance(2). Another study in Takahashi's lab involving CD4 and CD8 used the CD8 alpha antibody in order to map signal molecules implicated in mediating the effects of interleukin 2 on T-cells(3).

FAQs for CD8 alpha Antibody (NBP1-49045). (Showing 1 - 5 of 5 FAQs).
I'm looking for a good anti CD8 antibody working on immunofluorescence on murine tumoral tissue fixed in paraformaldehyde, cryoprotected with sucrose, frozen in OCT medium and sectioned with a cryostat.
I would recommend our CD8 alpha antibody NBP1-49045, it is guaranteed to work in IHC-P and and IHC-FR.
How do I know if this will actually work in IHC?
This CD8 alpha antibody has been validated in IHC and has been cited in a paper where it was used in IHC. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3387923/
Will this CD8 alpha antibody work for rabbit in IHC-FR?
Unfortunately this CD8 alpha antibody has not yet been validated in rabbit and there no sequence info in uniprot yet so we can't speculate based on homology. You may want to take advantage of our innovator's reward program which will allow you to test in rabbit without any financial risk.
Does this CD8 alpha antibody detect both forms of CD8?
Both the alpha - beta heterodimer as well as the alpha - alpha homodimer are detected by the (53-6.7) CD8 alpha antibody.
Would you recommend your CD8 alpha antibody as a T-Cell marker?
Yes this CD8 alpha anitbody has been cited in a study where it was used in FACS to separate out CD8+ T-cells. Please see the references tab PMID: 1608966. It is important to note that our CD8 alpha antibody may also stain mature dendritic cells and NK cells.
