Description: The OX-86 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse CD134, also known as OX40. A member of the TNF receptor superfamily, CD134 is a 50 kDa type I membrane glycoprotein expressed by activated mouse T lymphocytes. Rat CD134 was initially identified as an activation marker only on activated CD4+ T cells. In contrast, mouse CD134 is expressed by both activated CD4+ and CD8+ T cells. The interaction of CD134 with CD252 (OX40 ligand) has been implicated in T cell-dependent humoral responses, regulation of primary T cell expansion, survival of T cells, size of the memory T cell pool, and regulation of tolerance in the CD4+ T cell compartment.
Applications Reported: This OX-86 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This OX-86 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of stimulated 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.
PerCP-eFluor® 710 emits at 710 nm and is excited with the blue laser (488 nm); it can be used in place of PerCP-Cyanine5.5. We recommend using a 710/50 bandpass filter, however, the 695/40 bandpass filter is an acceptable alternative. Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome.
Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (cat. 00-8222) (100 µL of cell sample + 100 µL of IC Fixation Buffer) or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution (cat. 00-5333) for up to 3 days in the dark at 4°C with minimal impact on brightness and FRET efficiency/compensation. Some generalizations regarding fluorophore performance after fixation can be made, but clone specific performance should be determined empirically.
Excitation: 488 nm; Emission: 710 nm; Laser: Blue Laser.
Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
Tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily, member4, also known as ACT35 or CD134 is a cell surface glycoprotein that was discovered through the production of a monoclonal antibody raised against the HUT-102 cell line. It belongs to the tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily. CD134 was mapped to 1p36 by fluorescence in situ hybridization. CD134 is the primary receptor for feline immunodeficiency virus. CD134 expression can promote viral binding and renders cells permissive for viral entry, productive infection, and syncytium formation. Stimulating the receptor can improve the response to a powerful virus vector and may be useful in vaccine development.
