Human CD28 is an important costimulatory molecule found on all CD4+ T cells and on about half of the CD8+ T cells. T cell activities attributed to CD28 include prevention of anergy, induction of cytokine gene transcription, stabilization of cytokine mRNA and activation of CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocytes.
Suitable for use in ELISA and Flow Cytometry. Other applications not tested.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
