Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
In immature T cells the T-cell receptor beta-chain gene(TCRB; MIM 186930) is rearranged and expressed before the TCRA (MIM186880) chain. At this early stage, TCRB can associate with thepre-T-cell receptor alpha chain (PTCRA). The PTCRA, together withTCRB and the CD3 complex (see MIM 186740), minimally make up thepre-T cell receptor (pre-TCR), which regulates early T celldevelopment.
