EXBIO Antibodies Product Data Sheet

1P-205-T025

Monoclonal Antibody to CD6
Phycoerythrin (PE) conjugated (25 tests)

Clone: MEM-98
Isotype: Mouse IgG1
Specificity: The MEM-98 antibody reacts with CD6, a 100-130 kDa single chain transmembrane glycoprotein expressed on T and B lymphocytes subsets, thymocytes, and acute lymphocytic leukemia cells.
Regulatory Status: RUO
Immunogen: Human CD6 antigen purified by immunoaffinity chromatography from HBP-ALL cells followed by preparative SDS-PAGE of non-boiled non-reduced sample (excised piece of gel corresponding to the 100 kDa zone).
Species Reactivity: Human
Preparation: The purified antibody is conjugated with R-Phycoerythrin (PE) under optimum conditions. The conjugate is purified by size-exclusion chromatography and adjusted for direct use. No reconstitution is necessary.
Storage Buffer: The reagent is provided in stabilizing phosphate buffered saline (PBS) solution containing 15mM sodium azide.
Storage / Stability: Store in the dark at 2-8°C. Do not freeze. Avoid prolonged exposure to light. Do not use after expiration date stamped on vial label.
Usage: The reagent is designed for Flow Cytometry analysis of human blood cells using 20 μl reagent / 100 μl of whole blood or 106 cells in a suspension.
The content of a vial (0.5 ml) is sufficient for 25 tests.
Expiration: See vial label
Lot Number: See vial label
Background: CD6, also known as T12, is a member of the scavenger receptor superfamily found on T and B cell subsets, thymocytes, and acute lymphocytic leukemia cells (ALL). CD6 interacts with its ligand CD166/ALCAM (activated leukocyte cell adhesion molecule) and serves as a coreceptor for T cell activation and stabilizer of the immunological synapse. CD6-ALCAM mediated cell adhesion is also important for T cell proliferation. CD6 may exert some its functions via association with CD5, probably by fine-tuning CD5 signaling. Ligation of CD6 has antiapoptotic role in chronic lymphocytic leukemia B cells.
