Down Arrow Up Arrow

The CD158a antibody, clone HP-3E4, is derived from the fusion of SP2 mouse myeloma cells with spleen cells isolated from BALB/c mice immunized with activated NK lymphocytes.
The CD158a antibody recognizes a 58-kilodalton (kDa) surface protein found on NK cells and on some CD4– T lymphocytes.

Fluorescein (FITC) is part of the BD blue family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 494-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 518-nm. FITC is designed to be excited by the Blue laser (488-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 520 nm (e.g., a 530/30-nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
