    Published customer image:FITC conjugated Mouse anti Rat CD71 antibody, clone OX-26 used for flow cytometryImage caption:Flow cytometric analysis of follicle stem cells separated by Vario MACS. (a–d) Single-color flow cytometric analysis of the selected follicle stem cells. X axis represents fluorescence intensity, and Y axis represents cell number. (a) Bulge region cell suspension without antibody staining was used as control. (b) CD34bri cells were isolated by Vario MACS. (c) Control for a6 separation. (d) a6bri cells were isolated by Vario MACS. (e–h) Two-color flow cytometric analysis of follicle stem cells selected by Vario MACS. Cells were divided into four subpopulations: a PEbri FITCdim cells; b PEbri FITCbri cells; c PEdim FITCdim cells; and d PEdim FITCbri cells. (e) Control. (f) CD71 and CD34 was detected with FITC (X axis) and with PE (Y axis). The majority of the isolated cells were CD34briCD71dim cells, characterized by high level expression of CD34 and low level of CD71. No CD34dimCD71bri cells were detected in our experiments. (g) Control for a6 and CD71 combined separation; (h) The a6briCD71dim cells were the main subpopulation of the separated cells.From: Huang E, Lian X, Chen W, Yang T, Yang L.

Target/Specificity Mouse anti-Rat CD71 antibody, clone OX-26 recognizes rat CD71, also known as transferrin receptor, a homodimeric type II transmembrane protein, expressed by all proliferating cells and cells with a requirement for iron, including reticulocytes and capillary endothelium in brain. Clone 0X-26 also binds to a number of non-dividing normal tissues.The balance between a sufficient amount of iron uptake and prevention of accumulation of excess iron within a cell, is vitally important to maintain cellular functions such as oxygen and electron transport and mitochondrial energy metabolism, whilst preventing permanent cell and tissue damage. Transferrin receptor (CD71), transferrin and ferritin have been identified as specialised proteins which control the uptake, transport and storage of free iron in tissues, thereby maintaining iron homeostasis (Crihtonet al.1992).An imbalance in iron homeostasis within the brain has been linked with the neurodegenerative diseases, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s and Multiple Sclerosis (Benarroch 2009).Mouse anti-rat CD71 clone OX-26 is reported as suitable for use in immunoelectron microscopy (Lipardiet al.2002). OX-26 detects a band of ~95kDa in Western blotting under reducing conditions and ~195kDa under non-reducing conditions reflecting it's homodimeric structure.
