Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot. Species enclosed in parentheses are predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology.
Specificity / Sensitivity
Zap-70 (136F12) Rabbit mAb (Alexa Fluor® 647 Conjugate) detects endogenous levels of total Zap-70 protein.
Source / Purification
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding the amino-terminus of human Zap-70. The antibody was conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 647 under optimum conditions with an F/P ratio of 2-6. The Alexa Fluor® 647 dye is maximally excited by red light (e.g. 633 nm He-Ne laser). Antibody conjugates of the Alexa Fluor® 647 dye produce bright far-red-fluorescence emission, with a peak at 665 nm.
Flow cytometric analysis of Ramos B (blue) and Jurkat T (green) cells using Zap-70 (136F12) Rabbit mAb (Alexa Fluor® 647 Conjugate).
Two-color flow cytometric analysis of a mixed population of T and B cells (Jurkat and Ramos, respectively) using Zap-70 (136F12) Rabbit mAb (Alexa Fluor® 647 Conjugate) and a CD3 antibody. CD3 negative B cells have little or no Zap-70 staining, while CD3 positive T cells stain brightly for Zap-70 protein.
This Cell Signaling Technology antibody is conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 647 fluorescent dye and tested in-house for direct flow cytometric analysis of human cells.
The Syk family protein tyrosine kinase Zap-70 is expressed in T and NK cells and plays a critical role in mediating T cell activation in response to T cell receptor (TCR) engagement (1). Following TCR engagement, Zap-70 is rapidly phosphorylated on several tyrosine residues through autophosphorylation and transphosphorylation by the Src family tyrosine kinase Lck (2-6). Tyrosine phosphorylation correlates with increased Zap-70 kinase activity and downstream signaling events. Expression of Zap-70 is correlated with disease progression and survival in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (7,8).
