CD CLUSTERED ANTIBODIES  

(anti-Human and others as indicated)

NOTE: 10% Discount on purchases of  3 or more any combination of monoclonal CD antibodies. Please inquire for bulk or custom formulations (without preservative or carrier).

RDI Division of Fitzgerald Industries Intl  offers a wide line of  antibodies. Since no one antibody works best for all applications (flow cytometry, neutralization, blotting, histochemistry, ELISA, etc), we offer many different types of antibodies to help solve this problem. Please inquire for other applications or types of antibodies not listed below. All products are for in vitro research use only-not for use in or on humans or animals-not for use in diagnostics. Price/availability/specifications subject to change without notice.

Specificity:

Cell type: Subpopulation of human T lymphocytes.

Ag.MW.: 44 kD.

Reactivity: The monoclonal antibody is directed against the CD28-antigen,which is expressed on a subpopulation of human T-cells (1) and activated B-cells. It has ben shown that CD28 positive CD8-cells are cytotoxic T lymphocyte precursors. The monoclonal antibody does not react with B-cells, granulocytes and monocytes.


Application: To induce the proliferation of resting T lymphocytes.


Methods: Culture techniques.


Clone: 15E8 (402)

This clone has been derived from hybridization of SP2/0 cells with spleen cells of a BALB/c mouse immunized with human T lymphocytes.

Mouse isotype:The monoclonal antibody is of the mouse subclass IgG1.


Source: Ascites fluid of tumor bearing BALB/c mice.


Purification: Ammoniumsulphate precipitation and ion exchange chromatography.


Packing: Each vial contains 0.1 ml with approximately 2.0mg/ ml monoclonal antibody in 20mM TRIS and 150 mM NaCI, pH 8.0 filtered 0.22um.

Storage: Monoclonal antibodies should be stored below -18Deg..Repeated thawing and freezing may reduce the antibody activity and should be avoided.Do not use this product beyond the stated expiration date.

Preservative Mertiolate (0.001%).


Storage and stability Monoclonal antibodies should be stored in the dark at 2-8°C. The reagent is stable until the expiry date stated on the vial label.

Major reactivity The monoclonal antibody is directed against the CD28- antigen, which is expressed on a subpopulation of human T-cells (1) and activated B-cells. It has been shown that CD28 positive CD8-cells are cytotoxic T lymphocyte precursors. The monoclonal antibody does not react with B-cells, granulocytes and monocytes.

Molecular mass 44 kDa.

Application To analyze the role of CD28 in T-cell proliferation (2, 3).


Methods Indirect immunofluorescence staining with analysis by flowcytometry or fluorescence microscopy.

APPLICATION FOR AN INDIRECT IMMUNOFLUORESCENCE TECHNIQUE

Reagents

- FITC-conjugated goat anti-mouse immunoglobulin antiserum (M1204).

   Remove aggregates by centrifugation at 1000 x g for 10 minutes.

- Buffer: Phosphate Buffered Saline (PBS), containing 0.2% Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA).

- PFA: Para-Formaldehyde 1%, pH 7.2, containing 0.2% BSA.

- microplate plates (96 wells, V bottom) or tubes.

Procedure

1 Fixate the cells with PFA 1% and wash them with buffer.

2 Prepare a mononuclear cell suspension with a concentration of 1 x 10 7 cells/ml in buffer.

3 Add 45 µl of cell suspension to the microplate wells or tubes.

4 Add 5 µl monoclonal antibody to the microplate wells or tubes and mix gently.

5 Incubate for 30 minutes at 2-8 C.

6 Add 100 µl buffer to the microplate wells or 2 ml buffer to the tubes and centrifuge at 500 x g for 5 minutes.

7 Aspirate the supernatant from the cell pellet and resuspend the cells.

8 Add 200 µl buffer to the microplate wells or 2 ml buffer to the tubes and centrifuge at 500 x g for 5 minutes.

9 Aspirate the supernatant from the cell pellet and resuspend the cells.

10 Add 50 µl FITC-conjugated goat anti-mouse immunoglobulin serum, solid phase adsorbed with human immunoglobulins,     diluted 1:80.

11 Incubate for 30 minutes at 2-8 C.

12 Repeat step 6-9.

13 Add 200 µl buffer.

14 The number of positive cells can be determined by flowcytometry analysis or by means of fluorescence microscopy.


NOTE: Care should be taken when drawing blood to avoid activation of platelets.

Platelets activation markers are weakly expressed on platelets prepared from directly fixed normal whole blood.

The expression is maximal on thrombin (1 U/ml) stimulated washed platelets.
