Human CD7 is one of the earliest T lineage markers and is found on most thymocytes and peripheral blood T cells. The function of CD7 is not yet fully known, although cross-linking of CD7 with antibodies induces a T cell transmembrane calcium flux and CD7 expression is induced by ionomycin.
Functional Application: Antibody induces T cell transmembrane calcium flux.
Suitable for use in Flow Cytometry, Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4 degrees C for short-term only. For long-term storage, store at -20 degrees C. Aliquots are stable for at least 6 months at -20 degrees C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
