Description: The UCHT2 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD5, a 67 kDa protein expressed by a majority of thymocytes and mature T cells and a subset of B cells. Signaling through the CD5 molecule activates T cells and binding of CD5 to its ligand on B cells, CD72, and plays an important role in T-B interaction and proliferation.\\\\The monoclonal antibody UCHT2 recognizes primate CD5.
Applications Reported: This UCHT2 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This UCHT2 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 µL (0.5 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.
Light sensitivity: This tandem dye is sensitive photo-induced oxidation. Please protect this vial and stained samples from light.
Fixation: Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer (cat. 00-8222) (100 µL cell sample + 100 µL 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: 488-561 nm; Emission: 775 nm; Laser: Blue Laser, Green Laser, Yellow-Green Laser.
Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
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.
