Bulk anti-human CD8 antibody (UCHT-4)
ichorbio’s bulk anti-human CD8 antibody (UCHT-4) is manufactured in a cGMP compliant, ISO Quality Standard 9001:2015 facility. ichorbio’s low endotoxin antibodies have half the endotoxin of comparable antibodies from our competitors at less than 1.0 EU/mg. If ichorbio’s low endotoxin antibodies are not low enough we also offer ultra low endotoxin antibodies which have even less endotoxin (<0.75EU/mg) at an even higher purity (98% versus 95%). ichorbio: the best antibodies for in vivo research.
Anti-human CD8 antibody (UCHT-4) recognizes Human CD8. Anti-Human CD8 recognizes a T-cell glycoprotein cell surface complex (Mr 32 kDa) which defines the cytotoxic/suppressor population of mature T-lymphocytes. The CD8 complex interacts with class I MHC molecules resulting in increased adhesion between CD8+ T-lymphocytes and their target cells. Binding of the CD8 antigen to Class I MHC molecules enhances T-cell activation. The cytoplasmic portion of the CD8 antigen is associated with a protein tyrosine kinase (p56lck).
This monoclonal antibody was purified using multi-step affinity chromatography methods such as Protein A or G depending on the species and isotype.
The CD8 antigen is expressed on approximately 19-48% of normal human peripheral blood lymphocytes and > 90% of normal thymocytes. It is also present on a subset of NK cells. Subjects infected with HIV have been shown to exhibit increased levels of CD8+ lymphocytes with a continual decrease in CD4+ lymphocytes.
Anti-CD8 may be used in studies of immunoregulation and T-lymphocyte mediated suppression, autoimmune disorders, immunodeficiency states and acute lymphoblastic leukemia and lymphoma.
