Description: The eBio7D4 antibody reacts with mouse CD25, the 55 kDa interleukin-2 receptor a chain (IL-2Ra). CD25 is expressed by early progenitors of the T and B lineage, as well as by activated mature T and B lymphocytes. By itself, CD25 binds IL-2 only with low affinity. However, CD25 associates with CD122 (IL-2 receptor beta chain) and CD132 (common gamma chain) to form the high affinity IL-2 receptor. CD25 plays a role in lymphocyte differentiation and activation/proliferation. The epitopes recognized by eBio3C7, PC61.5 and eBio7D4 are all different allowing for depletion with one antibody (typically PC61.5) followed by subsequent detection with another one. eBio7D4 has been reported to block IL-2 binding but can be overcome by additional IL-2. The monoclonal antibody PC61.5 (cat. 16-0251) is recommended for in vivo studies. Purity is > 95% IgG2a as determined by SDS-gel electrophoresis. Endotoxin: <0.5 EU/μg Applications Tested: This eBio7D4 (7D4) antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse splenocytes. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.125 µg per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest. Filtration: 0.2 μm post- manufacturing filtered. CD25 (IL2 receptor alpha chain/IL2RA) is a cytokine that plays a role in the proliferation of T and B lymphocytes. The receptor of this cytokine (IL2RA) is a heterotrimeric protein complex with a gamma chain also shared by interleukin 4 (IL4) and interleukin 7 (IL7). IL2RA, IL2R beta chain (IL2RB), and the IL2R gamma chain (IL2RG), constitute the high-affinity IL2 receptor. Homodimeric IL2RA chains result in low-affinity receptor, while homodimeric IL2RB chains produce a medium-affinity receptor. The expression of IL2 in mature thymocytes is monoallelic, which represents an unusual regulatory mode for controlling the precise expression of a single gene. IL2 is primarily produced by mature T cells. IL2 plays an important role as a growth factor, differentiation factor, and regulator of cell death. IL-2 stimulates the proliferation of B cells, augments natural killer cell activity, and inhibits granulocyte macrophage colony formation. The targeted disruption of a similar gene in mice leads to ulcerative colitis-like disease, which suggests a role in the immune response to antigenic stimuli. Mutations in this gene are associated with interleukin 2 receptor alpha deficiency.
