Description: The eBio5E10 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD90, also known as Thy-1 (thymus cell antigen-1). CD90 is a 25-35 kD receptor expressed on thymocytes, CD34+ prothymocytes, hematopoietic stem cells, neurons, a small subset of human fetal liver cells, cord blood cells, and bone marrow cells. CD90 is expressed on a subset of immature, CD34+ cells and a distinct subset of mature CD34- cells that are CD3+CD4+. The CD90+CD34+ population is enriched for cells capable of long-term culture. CD90 is involved in regulation of adhesion and signal transduction by T cells.
Applications Reported: This eBio5E10 (5E10) antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis, immunoprecipitation, immunoblotting (WB), and immunohistology staining of frozen tissue sections.
Applications Tested: This eBio5E10 (5E10) antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of human erythroleukemia (HEL) cells. 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.
Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC.
Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
CD90 (Thy 1) antigen is a GPI linked glycoprotein member of the Immunoglobulin super family. It is expressed in murine T cells, thymocytes, neural cells, Kupffer's cells and fibroblasts. Thy 1 may play a role in cell-cell or cell-ligand interactions during synaptogenesis and other events in the brain.
