Description: The eBio13G3-19D monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse Ly108, the mouse homologue of human SLAMF6 (signaling lymphocyte activation molecule family member 6). Mouse Ly108 is also known as NTB-A (NK cell, T cell, B cell antigen), and is expressed on NK, T cells, and B cells. Engagement of the Ly108 receptor enhances NK cell activity and expression of IFN-gamma, and contributes to the inability of NK cells to kill Epstein Barr virus-infected B cells in X-linked lymphoproliferative disease. CD4+ T cells from Ly108 knock-out mice exhibit diminished ability to produce IL-4 and defective neutrophil functions.
Staining has not revealed any strain differences between C57BL/6 and BALB/c mice. Other strains have not been tested.
Applications Reported: This eBio13G3-19D (13G3-19D) antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This eBio13G3-19D (13G3-19D) antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse splenocytes. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.25 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.
Ly108 is the mouse homologue of human SLAMF6 (signaling lymphocyte activation molecule family member 6). Mouse Ly108 is expressed on NK, B cells, and T cells. Activation of Ly108 receptor enhances NK cell activity and IFN-gamma expression.
