Description: This 21Mags8 antibody recognizes Eomesodermin (Eomes), also known as T-box brain 2 (TBR2). Eomes is a T-box transcription factor that is highly homologous to T-bet, which is essential during trophoblast development and gastrulation in most vertebrates. In the immune system, Eomes controls the differentiation of effector and memory CD8+ T cells, as well as natural killer (NK) cells. Expression of Eomes in these cells correlates with high expression of CD122, the common beta-chain of the IL-2R and IL-15R.
Note: For detection of mouse Eomes, we recommend 12-4875 and 51-4875 and for detection of human Eomes, we recommend 51-4877 due to the brighter staining intensity of these products compared to clone 21Mags8.
Applications Reported: This 21Mags8 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis, and immunoblotting (WB).
Applications Tested: This 21Mags8 antibody has been tested by western blot analysis of mouse splenocytes. As a starting concentration, this antibody can be used at 2 µg/mL.
Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC.
Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
TBR2 is a member of a conserved protein family that shares a common DNA-binding domain, the T-box. T-box genes encode transcription factors involved in the regulation of developmental processes. A similiar protein disrupted in mice is shown to be essential during trophoblast development and gastrulation. TBR2 plays a role in brain development and is required for the specification and the proliferation of the intermediate progenitor cells and their progeny in the cerebral cortex.
