Description: The OX35 monoclonal antibody reacts with rat CD4. CD4 is a co-receptor which participates in signaling through the T cell receptor by making contacts with MHC class II expressed on antigen-presenting cells (APC). CD4 is expressed in the thymus by CD4+CD8+ "double-positive" and CD4+ "single-positive" thymocytes, and by CD4+ "helper" T cells in the periphery. CD4 is a cell-surface membrane glycoprotein which contains four extracellular immunoglobulin-like domains.
Applications Reported: This OX35 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This OX35 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of rat splenocytes. This may be used at less than or equal to 1.0 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
