Rat CD86/B7-2 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Rat CD86/B7-2 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of rat CD86 in cell culture supernates and serum.
Cluster of Differentiation 86(also known as CD86 and B7-2) is aprotein expressed on antigen-presenting cells that provides costimulatory signals necessary for T cell activation and survival. The CD86 gene encodes a type I membrane protein that is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. Using fluorescence in situ hybridization mapping, the CD86, like CD80, was mapped to human 3q21 and mouse chromosome 16, band B5. The antigen presentation coactivators B71 and B72, which are important in other immune-mediated thyroid diseases, are important for lymphocytic infiltration and the immune response against thyroid carcinoma.
