CD5 Mouse anti-Human, Biotin, Clone: UCHT2, eBioscience
Mouse Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Invitrogen 13005982
Description: The UCHT2 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD5, a 67 kDa protein expressed by a majority of thymocytes and mature T cells and a subset of B cells. Signaling through the CD5 molecule activates T cells and binding of CD5 to its ligand on B cells, CD72, and plays an important role in T-B interaction and proliferation. The monoclonal antibody UCHT2 recognizes primate CD5. Applications Reported: This UCHT2 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis and immunohistology staining of frozen tissue sections. Applications Tested: The UCHT2 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 1 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. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.CD5 is a 67 kDa human T-lymphocyte single-chain transmembrane glycoprotein. CD5 is present on all mature T-lymphocytes, on most of thymocytes and on many T-cell leukemias and lymphomas. CD5 also reacts with a subpopulation of activated B-cells and may act as a receptor in regulating T-cell proliferation. CD5 is found on 95% of thymocytes and 72% of peripheral blood lymphocytes. In lymph nodes, the main reactivity is observed in T cell areas. CD5 is expressed by many T cell leukemia, lymphomas, and activated T cells. Diseases associated with CD5 dysfunction include thymus cancer and Richter’s Syndrome.
