Description: The 53-7.3 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse CD5, a 67 kDa protein expressed by a majority of thymocytes, mature T cells and a subset of B cells. The expression of CD5 by a small subset of B cells characterizes a developmentally and functionally distinct lineage of B cells called B-1 cells. CD5 is a counter-receptor for CD72 and plays a role in the T-B cell interaction.
Applications Reported: This 53-7.3 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This 53-7.3 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.
Excitation: 633-647 nm; Emission: 660 nm; Laser: Red Laser
CD5 is a 67kDa human T-lymphocyte single-chain transmembrane glycoprotein. It is present on all mature T-lymphocytes, on most of thymocytes and on many T-cell leukemias and lymphomas. It also reacts with a subpopulation of activated B-cells.
