Description: The RMT3-23 monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse CD366 (TIM3), a Th1-specific cell surface protein. The RMT3-23 antibody reacts with CD366 protein expressed by both BALB/c and C57BL/6 strains of mice. CD366, a type I transmembrane protein, contains an immunoglobulin and a mucin-like domain in its extracellular portion and a tyrosine phosphorylation motif in its cytoplasmic portion. CD366 is expressed selectively by differentiated CD4^+Th1 and CD8^+Tc1 cells, but is absent on CD4^+Th2 and CD8^+Tc2 cells. Other hematopoietic cell types, including naive T cells, B cells, macrophages and dendritic cells, do not express CD366, at least at the protein level. CD366 expression is upregulated at a late stage of T cell differentiation on Th1 cells after 3 rounds of in vitro polarization suggesting a role for this molecule in the transport or effector function of Th1 cells rather than a contribution to T cell differentiation. In an experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) model, CD366 was shown to be expressed on most CD4^+ and CD8^+ T cells in the central nervous system at the onset of clinical signs of disease, while less than 2% of CD4^+ cells in the periphery expressed CD366 after immunization.
RMT3-23 has been shown to have functional activity; blocks DC recognition of apoptotic cells and also induces autoantibody production.
Applications Reported: This RMT3-23 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This RMT3-23 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse splenocytes. 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.
Super Bright 436 can be excited with the violet laser line (405 nm) and emits at 436 nm. We recommend using a 450/50 bandpass filter, or equivalent. Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome.
When using two or more Super Bright dye-conjugated antibodies in a staining panel, it is recommended to use Super Bright Complete Staining Buffer (Product # SB-4401) to minimize any non-specific polymer interactions. Please refer to the datasheet for Super Bright Staining Buffer for more information.
Excitation: 405 nm; Emission: 436 nm; Laser: Violet Laser
