Mouse anti Human CD103 antibody, clone 2G5.1 recognizes the human CD103 cell surface antigen, also known as the alphaE integrin, HML-1 antigen, Mucosal lymphocyte 1 antigen or Integrin alpha-E. CD103 is a 1161 amino acid, ~130 kDa single pass type 1 transmembrane glycoprotein.
Mouse anti Human CD103 antibody, clone 2G5.1 reacts with various subsets of human intra-epithelial lymphocytes:- 40% of lamina propria T-cells; 30% of mesenteric lymphoblasts and some lymphocytes from other mucosa. It recognises less than 0.1% bone marrow cells and less than 0.7% PBL.

Applications of CD103 antibody
|Immunohistology - Frozen 1
|Immunohistology - Paraffin
- 1The epitope recognised by this antibody is reported to be sensitive to formaldehyde fixation and tissue processing. Bio-Rad recommends the use of acetone fixation for frozen sections.
Where this antibody has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. Suggested working dilutions are given as a guide only. It is recommended that the user titrates the antibody for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.
- Flow Cytometry
- Use 10ul of the suggested working dilution to label 5 x 105 cells in 100ul.
- Histology Positive Control Tissue
