Description: This BY55 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD160, a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily expressed on natural killer cells, natural killer T cells, activated and/or memory CD4 and CD8 T cells, gamma delta T cells, and intraepithelial cells. CD160 has been reported to bind herpes virus entry mediator (HVEM) in a complex with LIGHT and BTLA to deliver an inhibitory signal to CD4 T cells that abrogates proliferation and cytokine production. Three alternative splice variants of CD160 have also been identified in natural killer cells.
Applications Reported: This BY55 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This BY55 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 µL (0.125 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.
Excitation: 488-561 nm; Emission: 578 nm; Laser: Blue Laser, Green Laser, Yellow-Green Laser.
Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
CD160 is a receptor showing broad specificity for both classical and non-classical MHC class I molecules. CD160 is expressed at the cell surface as a tightly disulfide-linked multimer. It is involved in cell proliferation, cell surface receptor signaling pathways, cellular defense response, and regulation of immune response.
