Purified NA/LE Mouse Anti-Human CD2
Purified NA/LE Mouse Anti-Human CD2

Flow cytometric analysis of CD2 expression on rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta) peripheral blood lymphocytes. Whole blood was stained with either Purified NA/LE Mouse IgG1 κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 554721; dashed  line histogram) or Purified NA/LE Mouse Anti-Human CD2 (Cat. No. 555323; solid line histogram). Secondary staining was carried out with FITC Goat Anti-Mouse IgG/IgM (Cat. No. 555988) and erythrocytes were lysed with BD FACS™ Lysing Solution (Cat. No. 349202). The fluorescence histograms showing CD2 expression (or Ig Isotype control staining) were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact lymphocytes. Flow cytometry was carried out on a BD FACScan™ system.

Preparation And Storage

Store undiluted at 4°C. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. This preparation contains no preservatives, thus it should be handled under aseptic conditions.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  3. Species cross-reactivity detected in product development may not have been confirmed on every format and/or application.
  4. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.

RPA-2.10

The RPA-2.10 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD2 which is also known as Lymphocyte-function antigen-2 (LFA-2), LFA-3 receptor, Erythrocyte receptor, Sheep red blood cell (SRBC) receptor, or T-cell surface antigen T11/Leu-5. CD2 is a 50 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein. CD2 belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily of proteins along with its primary ligand, LFA-3 (CD58). It is expressed on the surface of ~80-90% of human peripheral blood lymphocytes, greater than 95% of thymocytes, all T lymphocytes that form E-rosettes, and a subset of NK cells. CD2 functions as an adhesion receptor that binds to CD58 resulting in the activation of CD2-positive T cells and NK cells and in the regulation of their cytolytic activities.

NA/LE
NA/LE refers to the culture and purification methods and buffer used to produce purified antibodies with no azide and low endotoxin: Aqueous buffered solution containing no preservative, 0.2µm sterile filtered. Endotoxin level is ≤0.01 EU/µg (≤0.001 ng/µg) of protein as determined by the LAL assay.NA/LE are perfectly suited to be used in culture or in vivo (for nonhuman studies) for functional assays — blocking, neutralizing, activation or depletion — where the presence of azide may damage cells or exogenous endotoxin may signal or activate cells.
