Rat anti Mouse CD4:FITC/CD8:RPE dual colour reagent was developed for the simultaneous recognition of mouse CD4 and CD8 cell surface antigens. Clone YTS191.1 recognises murine CD4, a T cell differentiation antigen expressed on thymocytes and helper/inducer T cells in the peripheral blood. Clone KT15 recognises a non-polymorphic epitope on the murine CD8 alpha chain.

Applications of CD4/CD8

This product has been reported to work in the following applications. This information is derived from testing within our laboratories, peer-reviewed publications or personal communications from the originators. Please refer to references indicated for further information. For general protocol recommendations, please visit the antibody protocols page.
Application Name Verified Min Dilution Max Dilution
Flow Cytometry Neat
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 106 cells in 100ul.

The Fc region of monoclonal antibodies may bind non-specifically to cells expressing low affinity Fc receptors. This may be reduced by using SeroBlock FcR (BUF041A/B).
