CD103 (Integrin alpha E) Mouse anti-Human, FITC, Clone: B-Ly7, eBioscience™
Mouse Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Invitrogen 11103841
Description: The B-Ly7 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD103, the alpha E integrin. CD103 non-covalently associates with integrin beta 7. CD103 is expressed mainly on intraepithelial lymphocytes and a small subset of peripheral lymphocytes. CD103 is also expressed by hairy cell leukemia (HCL) and by some chronic B cell lymphocytic leukemias. In vitro stimulation of human T cells with mitogens induces upregulation of CD103. Epithelial cell antigen, E-cadherin, binds to CD103 and mediates homing of lymphocytes to the intestinal epithelium. Applications Reported: B-Ly7 has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This B-Ly7 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of 2-3 day PHA-activated human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 µL (2 µg) per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. Excitation: 488 nm; Emission: 520 nm; Laser: Blue Laser. Filtration: 0.2 μm post-manufacturing filtered.The CD103 antigen is a 160-130-105 kDa molecule which is expressed on mucosa-associated T lymphocytes and activated cells and on subet of TGF beta -1 cells. This human intra epithelial lymphocyte marker is the E integrin chain associated with the b7 subunit. CD103 antibody stains a few bone marrow cells and, rarely, peripheral blood lymphocytes. CD103 is expressed by 0.5 to 2% of resting lymphocytes in peripheral blood and lymphoid organs.
