Mouse anti chicken CD8 alpha, clone 11-39 recognizes the alpha chain of the chicken CD8 homologue, a 33-35 kDa cell surface protein. CD8 is expressed as either alpha/alpha homodimers or alpha/beta heterodimers on a subpopulation of T cells and NK cells. Mouse anti chicken CD8 alpha, clone 11-39 recognises all polymorphic forms of chicken CD8 alpha.

Mouse anti chicken CD8 alpha, clone 11-39 has been demonstrated to cross react with Turkey (Li et al. 1999).
