    Published customer image:Mouse anti Pig wCD8 alpha antibody, clone MIL12 used for the evaluation of CD7α expression on porcine lymphocytes by flow cytometry.Image caption:Frequency of leukocyte subsets in PBMC and LPMC using FCM analysis A) shows a representative FCM analysis (n=4) from PBMCs and LPMC isolated from 6 week old pigs were analysed on the frequencies of different immune cell subsets using three-color FCM. Forward scatter and side scatter were used to gate on leukocytes (PBMCs (a) and LPMC (h) for further analysis of myeloid cells (CD172+; b and i), NK cells (CD3- CD8α+; c and j), B cells (CD21+; e and l) and T cells (CD3+; d and k). Gated T cells were then further analysed on their CD4/CD8α expression to determine the frequency of CTLs (CD4-CD8αhigh; f and m) and CD4+ T cells (f and m). CD8α expression of CD4+ T cells was also investigated to define the frequency of experienced CD4+ T cells (CD8a+CD4+; g and n). (o) Summarizes the results of this FCM analysis of all four analysed animals. Percentages from the PBMC population are represented by a closed circle and the percentages from the LPMC populations are represented by an open box. (p) and (q) is a pie chart showing the relative average percentage of PBMCs and LPMCs from all 4 animals.From: Pasternak JA, Ng S, Kaser T, Meurens F, Wilson HL Grouping Pig-Specific Responses to Mitogen with Similar Responder Animals may Facilitate the Interpretation of Results Obtained in an Out-Bred Animal Model.J Vaccines Vaccin 5:242.

Additional Information
Purification Purified IgG prepared by affinity chromatography on Protein G from tissue culture supernatant
Immunogen Porcine mesenteric lymphocytes.
Shelf Life 18 months from date of despatch.
Target/Specificity Mouse anti-Pig wCD8 alpha antibody, clone MIL12 recognizes an epitope on the alpha chain of porcine wCD8. Clone MIl12 was clustered at the Third International Swine CD Workshop (Haversonet al.2001). Clone MIL12 was determined to bind to the CD8a epitope on the alpha chain based on its staining pattern on T lymphocytes and on its ability to block binding of the previously characterized CD8a antibody clone 76-2-11 to T lymphocytes (Saalmulleret al.2001).
Preservative & Stabilisers 0.09% Sodium Azide (NaN3); 1% Bovine Serum Albumin
Storage Store at +4℃ or -20℃.
PrecautionsAnti-Pig wCD8 alpha Antibody, clone MIL12 (FITC) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
