The mouse monoclonal antibody OKT3 recognizes the CD3 antigen of the TCR/CD3 complex on mature human T cells. This antibody, also known as Orthoclone OKT3 or Muromonab-CD3, has been extensively used as a drug for therapy of acute, glucocorticoid resistant rejection of allogenic renal, heart and liver transplants. It has also been investigated for use in treating T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
The CD3 gene is mapped to human chromosome 11q23.3. The encoded protein exists in three isoforms, CD3ε, CD3γ and CD3δ and each contains an N-terminal extracellular domain, a transmembrane segment and a cytoplasmic domain. CD3 is a 20kDa glycoprotein expressed on surface of all human T lymphocytes.
The reagent is designed for Flow Cytometry analysis. Suggested working dilution is 1 μg/mL of sample. Indicated dilution is recommended starting point for use of this product. Working concentrations should be determined by the investigator.
Monoclonal Anti-CD3 antibody produced in mouse has been used in proliferation assay.
Acciones bioquímicas o fisiológicas
T-cell receptor-CD3 complex including CD3ε, CD3γ and CD3δ, plays a vital role in inducing early metabolic events that lead to T cell activation. Mutation in the CD3ε has been observed in T-B+ NK+ severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) patients.
