|Application ||IHC-F, FC|
|Calculated MW||38864 Da|
|Immunogen||Equine peripheral blood lymphocytes.|
|Shelf Life||18 months from date of despatch.|
|Other Names||T-cell surface antigen CD2, CD2, CD2|
|Target/Specificity||Rat anti-Horse CD2 antibody, clone Mac288 recognizes equine CD2, a 347 amino acid, single pass type-1 transmembrane glycoprotein containing single Ig-like C2-typeandIg-like V-typedomains.Equine CD2 is expressed by a large proportion of peripheral blood lymphocytes, most T-cells and few B-cells, it is not present on granulocytes. Immunohistochemical staining shows expression in most T cells of lymph node paracortex and occasional staining of lymphocytes in the follicular areas. In the thymus, rat anti-horse CD2 antibody, clone Mac288 stains the majority of mature thymocytes in the medulla and at least half of the immature thymocytes in the cortex (Kyddet al.1994). Rat anti-Horse CD2 antibody, clone Mac288 recognizes CD2 in Haflinger (Üneret al.2013) and Lusitano horse breeds (Ferreira-Diaset al.2005). Rat anti-Horse CD2 antibody, clone Mac288 is a reliable pan T-cell marker for analysis of cell mediated immunity in horses infected with equine herpes virus by multi-parameter flow cytometry (Plattet al.2010).|
