Target/Specificity Rat anti-Human CD3, clone CD3-12 raised against a peptide representing an invariant cytoplasmic sequence within the CD3ε chain recognizes human CD3ε. CD3 is a multimeric protein complex composed of four distinct polypeptide chains (ε, γ, δ, ζ) that assemble and function as three pairs of dimers (εγ, εδ, ζζ). The CD3 complex serves as a T cell co-receptor that associates non-covalently with the T cell receptor (TCR) (Malissen 2008;Guy and Vignali 2009;Smith-Garvinet al.2009). CD3 is a defining feature of cells belonging to the T cell lineage and can therefore be used as T cell marker.As Rat anti-Human CD3, clone CD3-12 has been specifically raised against an epitope within the epsilon peptide chain, highly conserved among species clone CD3-12 has a very broad species crossreactivity for the CD3 marker.
