Applications and Recommended Usage?
Quality Tested by Leinco
FC The suggested concentration for this G11 antibody for staining cells in flow cytometry is ≤ 1.0 μg per 106 cells in a volume of 100 μl or 100μl of whole blood. Titration of the reagent is recommended for optimal performance for each application.
Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.


Clone G11 recognizes an epitope of human CD2.
Antigen Distribution
CD2 is present on normal peripheral blood lymphocytes, thymocytes, mature circulating T-cells and a subset of NK cells.
CD2 is a 45-59 kD type I transmembrane glycoprotein belonging to the Ig superfamily. CD2 is the receptor for LFA-3/CD58. CD2 serves as an adhesion receptor that binds to CD58; generating the activation of CD2-positive T cells and NK cells and in the regulation of their cytolytic activities. CD2 is a specific marker for T cells and NK cells. Hence, it can be used in immunohistochemistry to identify the occurrence of these cells in tissue sections. The vast majority of T cell lymphomas and leukemias express CD2 which makes it possible to distinguish these conditions from B-cell lymphomas.
