Rat anti Mouse CD8α, clone KT15, recognizes the alpha chain of mouse CD8. CD8 is a heterodimeric protein composed of disulphide-linked CD8α and CD8β chains that is expressed primarily on cytotoxic T-cells. CD8 functions in the interaction with MHC Class I-bearing targets and plays a role in T-cell-mediated killing (Nakauchi , H. et al., 1985 & Nakauchi, H. et al., 1987).

Clone KT15 is reported to block T-cell-mediated cytotoxicity in in vitro assays (Zeis, M. et al., 2002).

This product is shipped at ambient temperature. It is recommended to aliquot and store at -20°C on receipt. When thawed, aliquot the sample as needed. Keep aliquots at 2-8°C for short term use (up to 4 weeks) and store the remaining aliquots at -20°C.

Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended. This product is photosensitive and should be protected from light.

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.

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).
