Mouse anti Guinea Pig CD8 antibody, clone CT6 reacts with guinea pig CD8 present on cytotoxic T-cells. CD8 comprises 2 subunits, alpha and beta and exists as either an alpha/alpha homodimer or an alpha/beta heterodimer. Sequence analysis suggests that guinea pig CD8 is more closely related to human than rat or mouse CD8 (Nagarajan et al. 2004).
