Description: The TS2/9 antibody recognizes human CD58, which is also known as Lymphocyte Associated Antigen-3 (LFA-3). CD58 exists both as a transmembrane protein as well as a GPI-linked extracellular protein. It has been shown that cells can express both forms concurrently. In addition, soluble CD58 has also been observed in serum, urine and synoval fluid of rheumatoid arthritis patients. CD58 is found on non-hematopoietic and most hematopoietic cells. Binding to its ligand CD2, which is present on T cells, initiates a signaling pathway which includes phosphorylation and results in release of cytokines. CD58 has been shown to be important in adhesion to various cell types, T cell activation, cytokine production and cytoxicity. The TS2/9 antibody has been reported to induce signaling events upon crosslinking. The epitope is in domain 1 of the immunoglobulin region. Applications Reported: This TS2/9 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This TS2/9 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal 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: 633-647 nm; Emission: 660 nm; Laser: Red Laser. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.This gene encodes a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. The encoded protein is a ligand of the T lymphocyte CD2 protein, and functions in adhesion and activation of T lymphocytes. The protein is localized to the plasma membrane. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2009]
