CD2 (cluster of differentiation 2) is a cell adhesion molecule found on the surface of T cells and natural killer (NK) cells. It has also been called T-cell surface antigen T11/Leu-5, LFA-2, LFA-3 receptor, erythrocyte receptor and rosette receptor. It interacts with other adhesion molecules, such as lymphocyte function-associated antigen-3 (LFA-3/CD58) in humans, or CD48 in rodents, which are expressed on the surfaces of other cells. In addition to its adhesive properties, CD2 also acts as a co-stimulatory molecule on T and NK cells.
Abbkine CD2 Monoclonal Antibody was affinity-purified from mouse ascites by affinity-chromatography using specific immunogen. The antibody detects endogenous CD2 proteins in Human, Mouse and Rat samples. It validated for IHC-p. It’s supplied as liquid solution with the concentration of 1mg/ml.
CD2 is a specific marker for T cells and NK cells, and can therefore be used in immunohistochemistry to identify the presence of such cells in tissue sections. I compared CD2 Monoclonal Antibody from different companies before purchasing and chose Abbkine’s product at last because of the price. But it beyond my expectation. The performance was amazing. I have to say I made a good decision.
