CD8 Antibody Immunohistochemistry on an FFPE Spleen Tissue
|Intended Use||For In Vitro Diagnostic Use|
|Summary and Explanation|
CD8 is a transmembrane glycoprotein that serves as a co-receptor for the T-cell receptor (TCR). Like the TCR, CD8 binds to a major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecule that is specific for the Class I MHC protein. To function, CD8 forms a dimer, consisting of a pair of CD8 chains. The most common form of CD8 is composed of a CD8-α and CD8-β chain, both members of the immunoglobulin superfamily with an immunoglobulin variable (IgV)-like extracellular domain connected to the membrane by a thin stalk, and an intracellular tail.
CD8 antibody is a T-cell marker for the detection of cytotoxic/suppressor cells of blood lymphocytes. CD8 is also detected on NK cells, most thymocytes, a subpopulation of null cells and bone marrow cells. This antibody is used to distinguish between reactive and neoplastic T-cells.
