CD8 Alpha antibody | Du CD8-1
Since the majority of avian immune studies have been carried out on chickens, relatively little is known about the immune system of ducks, though there is a resemblance between the main lymphoid organs: the spleen, thymus and bursa of Fabricius. At the cellular level, studies have shown that like mammalian T cells, duck lymphocytes are responsive to phytohaemagglutinin (PHA).
Double-staining with clone Du CD8-1 and MCA2480 Mouse anti Duck IgY light chain clone 14A3 revealed the presence of a CD8high /14A3- cytotoxic T cell population and a CD8low/14A3+ B cell population in duck spleen and also revealed a high percentage of CD8+/14A3+ cells in duck bursa (Kothlow et al. 1985). Mouse anti Duck CD8 alpha antibody, clone Du CD8-1 has been shown to not react with Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos).
