Heat-mediated antigen retrieval using Tris/EDTA (pH 8) is recommended for the staining of paraffin sections. A suggested positive control for this product is human tonsil
CD8 is expressed on T-cells and exists either a homodimer composed of two alpha chains, or a heterodimer composed of one alpha and one beta chain. CD8 functions as a co-receptor with the T-cell receptor and mediates efficient cel-to-cell interactions within the immune system. The CD8 alpha chain specifically binds to class I MHC molecules. CD8 alpha is expressed by a subset of T lymphocytes, most thymocytes, and the majority of NK cells.
