CUSABIO immunized an animal with a synthesized peptide derived from human CD8 to stimulate an immune response. B cells were isolated from the immunized animal and fused with myeloma cells to form hybridoma cells. A single hybridoma cell clone that produces CD8A-specific antibodies was screened and selected. RNA was extracted from the chosen hybridoma cells, and the gene sequence encoding the CD8A antibody was amplified using reverse transcription PCR. These CD8A antibody genes were then cloned into an expression vector and transfected into a host system for expression. The CD8A recombinant monoclonal antibodies were purified from the cell culture supernatant using affinity chromatography. The binding specificity and affinity of the recombinant CD8A monoclonal antibody were confirmed using four applications including ELISA, WB, IHC, and IP. This antibody specifically recognizes human CD8A protein.

Target Background

Integral membrane glycoprotein that plays an essential role in the immune response and serves multiple functions in responses against both external and internal offenses. In T-cells, functions primarily as a coreceptor for MHC class I molecule:peptide complex. The antigens presented by class I peptides are derived from cytosolic proteins while class II derived from extracellular proteins. Interacts simultaneously with the T-cell receptor (TCR) and the MHC class I proteins presented by antigen presenting cells (APCs). In turn, recruits the Src kinase LCK to the vicinity of the TCR-CD3 complex. LCK then initiates different intracellular signaling pathways by phosphorylating various substrates ultimately leading to lymphokine production, motility, adhesion and activation of cytotoxic T-lymphocytes (CTLs). This mechanism enables CTLs to recognize and eliminate infected cells and tumor cells. In NK-cells, the presence of CD8A homodimers at the cell surface provides a survival mechanism allowing conjugation and lysis of multiple target cells. CD8A homodimer molecules also promote the survival and differentiation of activated lymphocytes into memory CD8 T-cells.
