CD8B encodes the CD8 beta chain isoforms of the CD8 antigen. CD8 is a cell surface glycoprotein which facilitates efficient cell-cell interactions within the immune system and is located on most cytotoxic T lymphocytes. The T-cell receptor on the T lymphocyte and the co-receptor CD8 antigen identify antigens exposed by an antigen presenting cell (APC) in the context of class I MHC molecules. The functional co-receptor is either a heterodimer composed of one alpha and one beta chain or a homodimer composed of two alpha chains. Both alpha and beta chains share substantial homology to immunoglobulin variable light chains.
CD8B produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 158 amino acids (22-170a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 17.8kDa. (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 18-28kDa).
CD8B is expressed with a 6 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
CD8B protein solution (0.5mg/ml) contains 10% glycerol & Phosphate Buffered Saline (pH 7.4).
Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 85.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
