This antibody reacts with Vγ 2 T-Cell Receptor (TCR)-bearing T lymphocytes.
Vγ 2 T-Cell Receptor (TCR)-bearing T lymphocytes make up a significant proportion of γδ TCR-bearing cells in the late fetal and adult thymus and adult peripheral lymphoid tissues and lung.
The T cell receptor or TCR is a molecule found on the surface of T lymphocytes that is responsible for recognizing antigens bound to major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules. It is a heterodimer consisting of an α and β chain in 95% of T cells, while 5% of T cells have TCRs consisting of γ and δ chains. Engagement of the TCR with antigen and MHC results in activation of its T lymphocyte through a series of biochemical events mediated by associated enzymes, co-receptors and specialized accessory molecules.
Might play a role in a previously unrecognized form of immunological surveillance for stress-induced self-antigens.
