Anti-Rat CD8b SAFIRE Purified

Catalog Number : 10113-25


The 341 monoclonal antibody specifically reacts with the beta chain of the Rat CD8 molecule. The alpha and beta chains of the CD8 molecule form a heterodimer common on most thymocytes. The CD8 positive T cells of athymic rats and most NK cells express a homodimer composed solely of CD8a. It is reported that macrophages express CD8 alpha and beta chains for signal transduction. CD8 is an antigen co-receptor that interacts with MHC class I molecules on antigen-presenting cells.
