Anti-Mouse Foxp3 FITC
The 3G3 monoclonal antibody specifically reacts with the mouse 50-55 kDa Foxp3 protein (JM2, IPEX), a member of the forkhead family of transcription factors. Foxp3 is expressed by the Treg lymphocytes, whose development and function are influenced by the forkhead protein. Ectopic expression of Foxp3 in T lymphocytes inhibits their activity and cytokine expression.
Mutations of Foxp3 result in the “scurfy” mice phenotype.
Mouse IgG1, kappa
