Description: The MBSA43 monoclonal antibody reacts with human T cell immunoreceptor with Ig and ITIM domains (TIGIT), which is also known as VSTM3 or WUCAM. This 26 kDa protein is a member of the poliovirus receptor (PVR) family. The expression of TIGIT has been reported on NK cells, regulatory T cells, follicular T helper cells, memory CD4+ T cells, and CD8+ T cells, but it is not expressed on B cells or naive CD4+ T cells. TIGIT may be upregulated on naive CD4+ T cells upon activation. TIGIT can interact with certain members of the PVR and PVR-like families, including CD155, and also mediates the interaction of NK and T cells with antigen presenting cells, fibroblasts, and endothelial cells that express PVR and PVR-like proteins.
MBSA43 is reported to crossreact with Rhesus macaque.
Applications Reported: This MBSA43 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This MBSA43 antibody has been pre-diluted and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This may be used at 5 µL (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.
Alexa Fluor 700 emits at 723 nm and can be excited with the red laser (633-647 nm). Most instruments will require a 685 LP mirror and 710/20 band pass filter. Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome.
Excitation: 633-647 nm; Emission: 723 nm; Laser: Red Laser
Binds with high affinity to the poliovirus receptor (PVR) which causes increased secretion of IL10 and decreased secretion of IL12B and suppresses T cell activation by promoting the generation of mature immunoregulatory dendritic cells.
