The UC3-10A6 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes T-cell Receptor (TCR) V gamma 2 (Vγ2). Vγ2+ TCRγδ cells make up significant proportions of TCRγδ cells in the late fetal and adult thymus and adult peripheral lymphoid tissues and lung. The frequency of splenic Vγ2+ TCRγδ cells differs among inbred mouse strains; in C57BL/6 mice, the frequency increases dramatically during the four weeks after birth. Immobilized UC3-10A6 antibody can activate Vγ2+ TCRγδ cells. Please note that the Vγ2 designation correlates with the nomenclature of Garman, Doherty, and Raulet; the Vγ4 designation of Heiligand Tonegawa is equilvalent.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV786 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. This dye is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BV421 with an Ex Max of 405-nm and an acceptor dye with an Em Max at 786-nm. BD Horizon BV786 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in a filter used to detect Cy™7-like dyes (eg, 780/60-nm filter).
