This monoclonal antibody is aseptically packaged and formulated in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline (150 mM NaCl) PBS pH 7.2 - 7.4 with no carrier protein, potassium, calcium or preservatives added.
Functional grade preclinical antibodies are manufactured in an animal free facility using only In vitro protein free cell culture techniques and are purified by a multi-step process including the use of protein A or G to assure extremely low levels of endotoxins, leachable protein A or aggregates.
To protect mouse colonies from infection by pathogens and to assure that experimental preclinical data is not affected by such pathogens, all of Leinco’s Purified Functional PLATINUM™ antibodies are tested and guaranteed to be negative for all pathogens in the IDEXX IMPACT I Mouse Profile.
Storage and Handling
Functional grade preclinical antibodies may be stored sterile as received at 2-8°C for up to one month. For longer term storage, aseptically aliquot in working volumes without diluting and store at -80°C. Avoid Repeated Freeze Thaw Cycles.

Clone TM-β1 recognizes an epitope on mouse CD122.
CD122 is expressed on NK cells and at lower levels by T lymphocytes, B lymphocytes, monocytes, and macrophages.
CD122 is a 70-75 kD IL-2 receptor β chain that is a type I membrane protein. CD122 is involved in T cell-mediated immune responses and its activation increases proliferation of CD8+ effector T cells. It exists in three forms with varying degrees of binding affinity with IL-2. The low affinity form is a monomer of the α subunit and has no involvement in signal transduction. The intermediate affinity form is a γ/β heterodimer and the high affinity form is an α/β/γ heterotrimer. The intermediate and high affinity forms of the receptor are involved in receptor-mediated endocytosis and transduction of mitogenic signals from interleukin 2. This protein also interacts with the IL-15 receptor.
