This reagent has been pre-titrated and tested for flow cytometric analysis. The suggested use of this reagent is 5 µl(0.125µg) per 10^6 cells in a 100 µl suspension or 5 µl(0.125µg) per 100 µl of whole blood.
CD3 is a multimeric protein associated with the T-cell receptor (TCR) to form a complex involved in antigen recognition and signal transduction (PMID: 15885124). CD3 is composed of CD3γ, δ, ε, and ζ chains (PMID: 1826255). It is expressed by thymocytes in a developmentally regulated manner, T cells, and some NK cells (PMID: 3289580). The TCR recognizes antigens bound to major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules. TCR-mediated peptide-MHC recognition is transmitted to the CD3 complex, leading to the intracellular signal transduction (PMID: 11985657).
