Western blot analysis of extracts from 293T cells, mock transfected (-) or transfected with a construct expressing Myc/DDK-tagged full-length human CD7 protein (hCD7-Myc/DDK; +), using CD7 Antibody (upper), DYKDDDDK Tag Antibody #2368 (middle), and β-Actin (D6A8) Rabbit mAb #8457 (lower).Learn more about how we get our images.
Western blot analysis of extracts from various cell lines using CD7 Antibody (upper) and β-Actin (D6A8) Rabbit mAb #8457 (lower). As expected, CD7 protein is not expressed in either U-937 or HeLa cells.Learn more about how we get our images.
Western blot analysis of extracts from TALL-1 cells, untreated (-) or treated with PNGase F (+), using CD7 Antibody (upper) and β-Actin (D6A8) Rabbit mAb #8457 (lower).Learn more about how we get our images.
For western blots, incubate membrane with diluted primary antibody in 5% w/v BSA, 1X TBS, 0.1% Tween® 20 at 4°C with gentle shaking, overnight.
NOTE: Please refer to primary antibody datasheet or product webpage for recommended antibody dilution.

Reprobing of an existing membrane is a convenient means to immunoblot for multiple proteins independently when only a limited amount of sample is available. It should be noted that for the best possible results a fresh blot is always recommended. Reprobing can be a valuable method but with each reprobing of a blot there is potential for increased background signal. Additionally, it is recommended that you verify the removal of the first antibody complex prior to reprobing so that signal attributed to binding of the new antibody is not leftover signal from the first immunoblotting experiment. This can be done by re-exposing the blot to ECL reagents and making sure there is no signal prior to adding the next primary antibody.
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalently purified water.

Supplied in 10 mM sodium HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 100 µg/ml BSA and 50% glycerol. Store at –20°C. Do not aliquot the antibody.
CD7 Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total CD7 protein. This antibody cross-reacts with an unidentified protein of 90 kDa in some cell extracts.
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Ile69 of human CD7 protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
CD7 is a type-I transmembrane glycoprotein belonging to the immunoglobulin superfamily. CD7 is one of the earliest surface markers to be expressed on the surface of developing T cells and its expression is maintained throughout maturation of multiple T cell subsets and NK cells (1-3). Engagement of CD7 through binding its ligand, SECTM1, has been shown to promote tyrosine phosphorylation of its cytoplasmic domain, recruitment of PI3K, and delivery of costimulatory signals for T cell activation (4-6). While CD7 is expressed on normal T cells, it is also highly expressed in a variety of T cell malignancies, which has poised it as a potential target of immunotherapy (7-9).
