This product recognizes mouse CD86 (B7-2), an 80kD cell surface glycoprotein which is a member of the CD28/B7 family. In mouse CD86 is expressed at high levels on peripheral blood monocytes and dendritic cells, and at low levels on resting B and T-lymphocytes. Expression of CD86, on these cell populations, can be increased upon activation.
CD86 has been identified, along with CD80 (B7-1), as a ligand for CD28 and cytotoxic T-lymphocyte antigen-4 (CTLA4). CD28 and CTLA4 are two receptors that have opposing functions in T-cell stimulation. Interaction of CD86 with CD28 promotes a number of T-cell activities, whereas the binding of CD86 to CTLA4 inhibits T-cell responses.
Store at +4 °C or at -20 °C if preferred.
