Anti-CD3 may be used for enumerating immunocompetent T-lymphocytes in peripheral blood. Clone UCHT-1 is also useful in histology for localization of T-lymphocytes in tissue and may be used to enrich T-cells by cell sorting. This T-cell marker has also been used to determine T-versus B-cell lymphomas and leukemias.
|Ig Subclass||Mouse IgG1|
Mouse Anti-Human CD3 (Clone UCHT-1) recognizes Human Human CD3. Anti-Human CD3 recognizes a (Mr 22-28 kDa) T-cell surface glycoprotein. The epitope recognized by the CD3 antibody is expressed on a constant region of the epsilon chain of the CD3 antigen/T-cell receptor complex (TCR). The human CD3 antigen is expressed on approximately 60-80% of human peripheral blood lymphocytes, 20-40% of splenic lymphocytes, the majority of T-CLL and approximately 70% of T-ALL cells.
