Product Details
Product Code DIA-808
Product: Anti-CD8a Monoclonal Antibody
Description: Anti-mouse CD8 / DIA-808 Rat monoclonal anti-mouse cytotoxic T cell marker CD8a (CD8 alpha), Clone GHH8
Category: Monoclonal Antibody
Species: Rat
Clone: GHH8
Immunogen: Synthetic peptide from aa 230 - 247 of mouse CD8a (CPRPLVRQEGKPRPSEKIV)
Isotype: IgG2a kappa
Species Reactivity: Mouse, does not cross react with human.
Specificity: Murine CD8a Cytotoxic T-lymphocytes (CTLs)
Form: Lyophilized, in PBS with 2% BSA, 0.05% NaN3, pH 7.4. Antibody purified from culture supernatant.
Reactivity: Antibody clone GHH8 has been developed and validated for the detection of murine CD8a in formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue sections (mouse FFPE). Clone GHH8 identifies cytotoxic/suppressor T-cells in murine FFPE tissue by IHC.
CD8 is a marker for T-cells with suppressor and cytotoxic activity. CD8 is also found on the surface of some natural killer cells, most thymocytes, some T-cell lymphomas and large granular lymphocyte leukemias.
Antigen recognition and subsequent T-cell activation is controlled by the interaction between TCR (T-cell receptor) and pMHC (peptide-major histocompatibility complexe). T-cell activation is often enhanced by a close cooperation of the TCR with two dif-ferent co-receptors: CD8 and CD4. CD8 was first discovered as a cell surface marker in mice and was used to discriminate CD8+ CTLs and CD4+ Th cells. CD8a is expressed either as a heterodimer with the CD8 beta chain (CD8 alpha beta) or as a homodimer (CD8 alpha alpha). CD8 alpha beta is expressed on the majority of cytotoxic T-lymphocytes (CTLs). This CD8 heter-omeric proteins (with approx. 32-34 KDa each monomer) are physically associated with a p56 tyrosine kinase to mediate T-cell activation signals through phosphorylation of adjacent proteins.
Besides its important role in T-cell signalling, the CD8 co-receptor is also important for CD8+ T-cell development, stabilisation of the interface between CD8+ T-cells and target cells, and activation of intestinal epithelial T lymphocytes (iIELs). Therefore, CD8 has been the target of many therapeutic strategies designed to modulate T-cell responses during auto-immune reactions, allergy and organ transplant rejection.
