FunctionIdentifies cytotoxic/suppressor T-cells that interact with MHC class I bearing targets. CD8 is thought to play a role in the process of T-cell mediated killing.
Tissue specificityIsoform 1, isoform 3, isoform 5, isoform 6, isoform 7 and isoform 8 are expressed in both thymus and peripheral CD8+ T-cells. Expression of isoform 1 is higher in thymus CD8+ T-cells than in peripheral CD8+ T-cells. Expression of isoform 6 is higher in peripheral CD8+ T-cells than in thymus CD8+ T-cells.
Staining of Lou rat splenocytes with 0.25 µg of Purified Mouse IgG1, K Isotype Control (open histogram) or 0.25 µg of ab90965 (colored histogram) followed by Biotin Anti-Mouse IgG. Cells in the lymphocyte gate were used for analysis.
