Background InformationCD8a (CD8 α) subunit of CD8 T cell coreceptor is expressed in CD8 α/β heterodimers on majority of MHC I-restricted conventional T cells and thymocytes and in CD8 α/α homodimers on subsets of memory T cells, intraepithelial lymphocytes, NK cells, macrophages and dendritic cells. Regulation of CD8 β level on T cell surface seems to be an important mechanism to control their effector function. Assembly of CD8 α/β but not α/α dimers is connected with formation or localization to the lipid rafts. Recruiting triggered TCR complexes to these membrane microdomains as well as affinity of TCR to MHC I is modulated by CD8, thereby affecting the functional diversity of the TCR signaling.
Storage BufferThe reagent is provided in phosphate buffered saline (PBS) solution, pH ≈7.4, containing 0.09% (w/v) sodium azide.
StorageAvoid prolonged exposure to light. Store in the dark at 2-8°C. Do not freeze.
StabilityDo not use after expiration date stamped on vial label.
