- CITATIONS: 1
|Application ||WB, IHC-P, FC, E|
|Calculated MW||25729 Da|
|Antigen Region||150-180 aa|
|Other Names||T-cell surface glycoprotein CD8 alpha chain, T-lymphocyte differentiation antigen T8/Leu-2, CD8a, CD8A, MAL|
|Target/Specificity||This CD8A antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 150-180 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human CD8A.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||CD8A Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Identifies cytotoxic/suppressor T-cells that interact with MHC class I bearing targets. CD8 is thought to play a role in the process of T-cell mediated killing. CD8 alpha chains binds to class I MHC molecules alpha-3 domains.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 1: Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein|

The CD8 antigen is a cell surface glycoprotein found on most cytotoxic T lymphocytes that mediates efficient cell-cell interactions within the immune system. The CD8 antigen, acting as a co-receptor, and the T-cell receptor on the T lymphocyte recognize antigen displayed by an antigen presenting cell (APC) in the context of class I MHC molecules. The functional co-receptor is either a homodimer composed of two alpha chains, or a heterodimer composed of one alpha and one beta chain. Both alpha and beta chains share significant homology to immunoglobulin variable light chains.
