Rabbit anti Human CD8 alpha antibody recognizes the T-cell surface glycoprotein CD8 alpha chain, also known as CD8 antigen, alpha polypeptide (p32), CD8A, Leu2 T-lymphocyte antigen, OKT8 T-cell antigen, T cell co-receptor, T-cell antigen Leu2, T-lymphocyte differentiation antigen T8/Leu-2 or T8 T-cell antigen.

The CD8 antigen is a cell surface glycoprotein found on most cytotoxic T lymphocytes that mediates efficient cell-cell interactions within the immune system. The CD8 antigen acts as a coreceptor with the T-cell receptor on the T lymphocyte to recognize antigens displayed by an antigen presenting cell in the context of class I MHC molecules. The coreceptor functions as either a homodimer composed of two alpha chains or as a heterodimer composed of one alpha and one beta chain. Both alpha and beta chains share significant homology to immunoglobulin variable light chains. CD8A gene encodes the CD8 alpha chain. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for CD8A (provided by RefSeq, Nov 2011).

Rabbit anti Human CD8 alpha antibody detects a band of 26 kDa. The antibody has been extensively validated for western blotting using whole cell lysates.

Instructions For Use
Please refer to the PrecisionAb western blotting protocol. For additional information on secondary antibody dilution and exposure time see product web page.

Positive Control Lysate

Lysate Composition
400μg Jurkat lysate lyophilized in RIPA buffer.
Lysate Reconstitution
- If using DDT reconstitute the lyophilized lysate with 190μl DI H2O, add 200μl 2x Laemmli Sample Buffer and 10μl 2M DTT.
- If using BME reconstitute the lyophilized lysate with 180μl DI H2O, add 200μl 2x Laemmli Sample Buffer and 20μl BME.
Heat at 95°C for 5 minutes. For 10 well mini gels load 25μl. For other gel and comb formats please refer to the PrecisionAb western blotting protocol.
