Staining of rat splenocytes with Anti-Rat CD4 FITC (cat. 11-0040) and 0.125 ug of Mouse IgG1 kappa Isotype Control PE (cat. 12-4714) (left) or 0.125 ug of Anti-Rat CD103 (Integrin alpha E) PE (right). Cells in the lymphocyte gate were used for analysis and events are displayed after gating out CD3+ T cells and CD45RB+ cells and gating on the remaining cells, which are MHC Class II+.

Description: The OX62 monoclonal antibody reacts with rat CD103, also known as alphaE2 integrin. CD103 was originally identified on rat veiled dendritic cells, and is expressed by dendritic epidermal T cells in the skin, intraepithelial lymphocytes in the small intestine and by dendritic cells associated with gammadelta T cells. Integrins are a family of heterodimeric proteins which contain non-covalently associated alpha and beta transmembrane glycoproteins. Integrins function as receptors for extracellular matrix and cell-cell adhesion molecules.
Applications Reported: This OX62 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This OX62 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of rat 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: 488-561 nm; Emission: 578 nm; Laser: Blue Laser, Green Laser, Yellow-Green Laser
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.
