Description: The A7R34 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse CD127, the high affinity alpha subunit of the mouse IL-7 receptor. IL-7 receptor alpha chain is expressed by immature B cells in the bone marrow, double-negative (CD4-CD8-), single-positive (CD4+ and CD8+), but not double-positive (CD4+CD8+) thymocytes. In the periphery, mature T cells express CD127 at low level. A7R34 inhibits binding of IL-7 to its receptor and has been used in in vivo and in vitro studies to elucidate the role of IL-7 in T and B cell development and activation. Binding of A7R34 blocks the binding of SB/199, another antibody which recognizes mouse CD127.
Applications Reported: This A7R34 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This A7R34 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.

Interleukin-7 is a glycoptorein involved in the regulation of lymphopoiesis. Response of cells to IL7 is dependent on the presence of the interleukin 7 receptor (IL7R); the active receptor is a alpha/gamma chain heterodimer. The gamma(c) chain, which also associates with the interleukin-2 receptor, serves primarily to activate signal transduction by the IL7R complex, while the alpha chain of IL7R determines specific signaling events through its association with cytoplasmic signaling molecules.
