Species Reactivity
Chicken/Milk Snake TCR gamma/delta; Mr 50 & 40 kDa
Biotin (BIOT) Conjugate
Outbred chicken thymocytes and Ig-negative blood lymphocytes
To ensure lot-to-lot consistency, each batch of monoclonal antibody is tested to conform to characteristics of a standard reference reagent using immunofluorescence staining and analysis on a Becton Dickinson FACScan flow cytometer.
Preparation and Storage
The biotin (BIOT) conjugate is supplied as 0.5 mg in 1.0 mL of PBS/NaN3. Store at 2-8 degree C.
Other Notes
Small volumes of anti-TCR gamma delta antibody vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.

anti-TCR gamma delta antibody
The monoclonal antibody TCR-1 precipitates a heterodimer of Mr 90 kDa (two bands of Mr 50 kDa and 40 kDa upon reduction) on chicken peripheral blood T cells. Deglycosylation of the heterodimer yields two polypeptides of Mr 35 kDa and 32 kDa. Unlike human and mouse in which yo cells comprise a minor subset of T lymphocytes in the circulation, the chicken has a relatively large subset of yo T cells. The frequency of TCRgamma/delta cells is typically 20-25% of the total blood T cells but may reach approximately 50% in chickens of six- months of age. The majority of TCRgamma/delta+ cells in the thymus and blood are CD4-CD8- although a small subset of them may express CD8 or CD4 coreceptors. However, when the TCRgamma/delta+ cells migrate into the spleen and intestine most of them begin to express CD8. Although the biological function of yo T cells is unclear, they are clearly capable of cytotoxic activity in vitro. The CD8+ yo T cells may also be involved in down-regulation of the immune response. They cannot, however, induce a graft-vs-host (GVH) reactions.
