Mouse Anti-Human CD5 (Clone UCHT-2) recognizes an epitope on Human CD5. This monoclonal antibody was purified using multi-step affinity chromatography methods such as Protein A or G depending on the species and isotype.
The CD5 antigen is present on approximately 70% of normal peripheral blood lymphocytes and >90% of all T-lymphocytes. T-lymphocytes in the thymus stain weakly while peripheral T-cells stain strongly. Monocytes, granulocytes and NK cells are not stained.1 Anti-CD5 also reacts with a distinct subset of normal B-lymphocytes, occasional cells in B-lymphocyte areas of spleen and lymph node, and most Ig+ B-chronic lymphoblastic leukemia (CLL) cells. The CD5 antigen has also been shown to be present on some lymphomas.
Anti-Human CD5 can be used in research to study B-lymphocyte subsets or characterization of leukemias and lymphomas.
DyLight® 650 conjugated antibodies absorb light maximally around 652 nm (± 4 nm) and fluoresce maximally around 672 nm. They are brighter than Cy5 and Alexa 647 conjugates plus, they typically give less background than Alexa 647 conjugates. DyLight® 650 antibody conjugates are the best choice for far red-emitting conjugates and for multiple-labeling detection with a confocal microscope.
