Description: This TU27 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD122, which is also known as interleukin-2 receptor beta (IL-2R beta). This receptor is expressed on NK cells, activated T cells, some B cells, monocytes, and T cell leukemias. CD122 can also be detected during early NK cell commitment. IL-2R beta associates with the IL-2R alpha (CD25) or IL-15R alpha and common gamma chain (CD132) to form the high affinity IL-2 and IL-15 receptors, respectively. By itself, this membrane receptor can bind IL-2, but with intermediate affinity. The binding of IL-2 results in internalization of the cytokine, tyrosine phosphorylation of IL-2Rbeta, and activation of signaling cascades such as the JAK/STAT pathway. Applications Reported: This TU27 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This TU27 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analyis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 µL (0.5 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.CD122 (Interleukin 2 receptor) is involved in T cell-mediated immune responses, primarily expressed in the hematopoietic system and is present in 3 forms. The low affinity form of CD122 is a monomer of the alpha subunit and is not involved in signal transduction. The intermediate affinity form consists of an alpha/beta subunit heterodimer, while the high affinity form consists of an alpha/beta/gamma subunit heterotrimer. Both the intermediate and high affinity forms of the receptor are involved in receptor-mediated endocytosis and transduction of mitogenic signals from CD122. The protein encoded by the CD122 gene represents the beta subunit and is a type I membrane protein. Diseases associate with CD122 protein dysfunction include oligoarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis and rheumatoid factor negative juvenile idiopathic arthritis.
