CD8b Mouse anti-Human, Brilliant Violet 421, Clone: 2ST8.5H7, BD Optibuild™
Mouse Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: BD Biosciences 742390
The 2ST8.5H7 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes an epitope formed by the combination of CD8 alpha and beta chains. The majority of peripheral blood CD8+ T lymphocytes expresses a CD8 cells and CD8+ CD8 s. The 2ST8.5H7 antibody can therefore be used to selectively bind to CD8+ T cells while excluding CD8+ NK cells. CD8 binds to class I major histocompatibility (MHC) molecules, resulting in increased adhesion between the CD8+ T lymphocytes and target cells. Binding of CD8 to class I MHC molecules enhances the activation of resting T lymphocytes. CD8 is coupled to a protein tyrosine kinase, p56lck. The CD8:p56lck complex can play a role in T-lymphocyte activation through mediation of the interactions between CD8 and the CD3/TCR complex.The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV421 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 407nm and Em Max at 421nm, BD Horizon BV421 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the standard Pacific Blue™ filter set (eg, 450/50nm filter). BD Horizon BV421 conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting a 10 fold improvement in brightness compared to Pacific Blue conjugates. BV421 is a polymer-based dye excited by the violet laser and is one of the brightest fluorochromes offered by BD Biosciences. Conjugates are typically 10 times brighter than Pacific Blue™ conjugates and are often as bright as or brighter than PE conjugates. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, BD Horizon BV421, Pacific Blue™, and BD Horizon™ V450 cannot be used simultaneously.
