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. Other applications not tested.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4 degrees C before opening. DO NOT FREEZE! Stable at 4 degrees C as an undiluted liquid. Dilute only pror to immediate use. Freezing R-Phycoerythrin (PE) conjugates will result in a substantial loss of activity.
