Description: The H1.2F3 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse CD69, also known as very early activation antigen (VEA). CD69 is approximately 35 kDa and is expressed on the surface as a disulfide-linked dimer. While a small subset of lymphocytes in the thymus, spleen and lymph nodes express this antigen, activation of both T and B cells rapidly upregulates the surface expression of CD69, suggesting a role for CD69 in lymphocyte development and activation.
Applications Reported: The H1.2F3 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: The H1.2F3 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of resting and activated mouse splenocytes. This can be used at less than or equal to 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. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.

Also called AIM or activation inducer molecule, CD69 is a gp28/34 disulfide bonded homodimer with a Mr of 60 kDa under non-reducing conditions. CD69 contains one or two N linked oligosacaride. The CD69 molecule is also present on activated platelets. In normal peripheral blood a variable percentage of cells express the CD69 antigen. It is involved in lymphocyte signal transduction.
