Mouse anti Human CD25 antibody, clone BC96
recognizes the human CD25 cell surface antigen, also known as the Interleukin-2 receptor subunit alpha or TAC antigen.
CD25 is derived from a 272 amino acid precursor to yield a 251 amino acid monomeric receptor of ~53kDa which acts as the low affinity receptor for IL-2. CD25 can also form a heterodimer with CD122
to form the high affinity receptor for IL-2. CD25 is expressed by activated lymphocytes (Jackson et al. 1990
, Butcher et al. 1990
). Defects in CD4+/ CD25+ regulatory T cells have been implicated in the pathogenesis of autoimmune diabetes (Lindley et al. 2005
) and other autoimmune conditions (Sakaguchi et al. 1995
