Description: The 2E7 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse CD103, the alphaE integrin. CD103 non-covalently associates with integrin beta7 and is expressed on all intraepithelial lymphocytes, a small subset of peripheral lymphocytes, and dendritic epidermal T cells (DEC). Epithelial cell antigen E-cadherin binds to CD103 and mediates homing of lymphocytes to the intestinal epithelium.
Applications Reported: This 2E7 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This 2E7 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse lymph node cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.5 µg per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.
Excitation: 633-647 nm; Emission: 660 nm; Laser: Red Laser.
Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
The CD103 antigen is a 160-130-105 kDa molecule which is expressed on mucosa-associated T lymphocytes and activated cells and on subet of TGF beta -1 cells. This human intra epithelial lymphocyte marker is the E integrin chain associated with the b7 subunit. CD103 antibody stains a few bone marrow cells and, rarely, peripheral blood lymphocytes. CD103 is expressed by 0.5 to 2% of resting lymphocytes in peripheral blood and lymphoid organs.
