The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use 5µl for 106 cells. ab91535-Mouse monoclonal IgG2b, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
FunctionReceptor involved in the costimulatory signal essential for T-lymphocyte proliferation and interleukin-2 production, by binding CD28 or CTLA-4. May play a critical role in the early events of T-cell activation and costimulation of naive T-cells, such as deciding between immunity and anergy that is made by T-cells within 24 hours after activation. Isoform 2 interferes with the formation of CD86 clusters, and thus acts as a negative regulator of T-cell activation.
Tissue specificityExpressed by activated B-lymphocytes and monocytes.
Staining of normal Human peripheral blood cells with Mouse IgG2b Isotype Control PE-Cy5 (blue histogram) or ab95745 (purple histogram). Cells in the monocyte gate were used for analysis.
