This antibody was produced from a hybridoma resulting from the fusion of a mouse myeloma with B cells obtained from a mouse immunized with Human CD7 Plasmid. The IgG fraction of the cell culture supernatant was purified by Protein A affinity chromatography.
Monoclonal Mouse IgG2b Clone #21
Aqueous solution containing 0.5% BSA and 0.03%ProClin300
2 μl/Test, 0.1 mg/ml
This antibody is shipped as liquid solution at ambient temperature. Upon receipt, store it immediately at the temperature recommended below.
This antibody can be stored at 2℃-8℃ for twelve months without detectable loss of activity. Protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze !
Flow cytometric analysis of Human CD7 expression on human whole blood lymphocytes. Cells were stained with PerCP-conjugated anti-Human CD7. The fluorescence histograms were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable lymphocytes.
The cluster of differentiation (CD) system is commonly used as cell markers in immunophynotyping. Different kinds of cells in the immune system can be identified through the surface CD molecules which associating with the immune function of the cell. There are more than 32 CD unique clusters and subclusters have been identified. Some of the CD molecules serve as receptors or ligands important to the cell through initiating a signal cascade which then alter the behavior of the cell. Some CD proteins do not take part in cell signal process but have other functions such as cell adhesion. CD7 is a transmembrane protein which is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. This protein is found on thymocytes and mature T cells. It plays an essential role in T-cell interactions and also in T-cell / B-cell interaction during early lymphoid development.
