During this time, orders can still be placed by calling Client Services. We look forward to providing an improved customer experience. Beckman.com will return Monday, September 21st.
Along with CD8α, the CD8β polypeptide molecule is one of the two chains which can be expressed within the CD8 dimer. CD8α is required for surface expression of CD8β. The α and β glycoproteins have similar molecular weights of 32-34 kDa each. They form homodimeric (CD8α/α) or heterodimeric (CD8α/β) cell surface complexes. Most of human peripheral T cells express CD8 as an α/β heterodimer. NK cells and a proportion of TCR γ/δ T cells express CD8 as an α/α homodimer. CD8 β surface expression requires the surface expression of CD8α. Consequently, CD8α can form homodimer but CD8β cannot.
Isotype: IgG2a Mouse
The 2ST8.5H7 monoclonal antibody reacts with an epitope formed by the combination of the α and β polypeptides.
