Mouse anti Pig wCD8 alpha antibody, clone MIL12 recognizes an epitope on the alpha chain of porcine wCD8. Clone MIl12 was clustered at the Third International Swine CD Workshop (Haverson et al. 2001). Mouse anti Pig wCD8 alpha antibody, clone MIL12 was determined to bind to the CD8a epitope on the alpha chain based on its staining pattern on T lymphocytes and on its ability to block binding of the previously characterized CD8a antibody clone 76-2-11 to T lymphocytes (Saalmuller et al.2001).
