DescriptionA 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. Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE. Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC. Filtration: 0.2 μm post-manufacturing filtered. CD86 is one of two ligands (the other CD80) for CTLA4 and CD28. CD86 acts as costimulatory molecule in eliciting T-cell help during antigen presentation. Antigen presentation in the absence of sufficient co-stimulation involving CD86/CD80 can induce tolerance. CD80 appears to play a role distinct from CD80 in T helper cell differentiation. CD86 is a type I membrane protein that is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. The CD86 protein is expressed by antigen-presenting cells, and it is the ligand for two proteins at the cell surface of T cells, CD28 antigen and cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated protein 4. Binding of CD86 with CD28 antigen is a costimulatory signal for activation of the T-cell. Binding of CD86 with cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated protein 4 negatively regulates T-cell activation and diminishes the immune response. Alternative splicing results in two transcript variants encoding different isoforms of CD86. Additional transcript variants have been described for CD86, but their full-length sequences have not been determined. Diseases associated with CD86 dysfunction include gallbladder squamous cell carcinoma and myocarditis.
