Description: This OX33 monoclonal antibody reacts with rat CD45RA. In rats, this isoform of CD45, which is also known as leukocyte common antigen, is present only on B cells. CD45 is a type I transmembrane protein tyrosine phosphatase that exists as a variety of different isoforms due to alternative splicing.
Applications Reported: This OX33 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This OX33 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of rat splenoctyes. This can be used at less than or equal to 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. 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.
CD45RA is an isoform of the CD45 complex and has restricted expression between different subtypes of lymphoid cells. CD45 (LCA, leukocyte common antigen) is a receptor-type protein tyrosine phosphatase ubiquitously expressed in all nucleated hematopoietic cells, comprising approximately 10% of all surface proteins in lymphocytes. CD45 glycoprotein is crucial in lymphocyte development and antigen signaling, serving as an important regulator of Src-family kinases. CD45 protein exists as multiple isoforms as a result of alternative splicing and these isoforms differ in their extracellular domains, however, they share identical transmembrane and cytoplasmic domains. CD45 isoforms differ in their ability to translocate into the glycosphingolipid-enriched membrane domains and their expression depends on cell type and physiological state of the cell. Besides the role in immunoreceptor signaling, CD45 is important in promoting cell survival by modulating integrin-mediated signal transduction pathway and is also involved in DNA fragmentation during apoptosis. CD45 is expressed on cells of the human hematopoietic lineage, with the exception of mature red cells and is not detected on differentiated cells of other tissues. It is likely that CD45 plays an important role in signal transduction, inhibition or upregulation of various immunological functions. Diseases associated with CD45 dysfunction include severe combined immunodeficiency and Hepatitis C.
