Reagent Type: 

CD1

Description: 

OCH, an a-galactosylceramide analogue with a truncated side chain, stimulates Th2-biased cytokine production in natural killer T cells. Through a collaboration with Dr. Paul Savage at Brigham Young University, the NIH Tetramer Facility is providing mouse and human CD1d monomers and tetramers loaded with OCH. OCH loaded CD1d tetramers identify NKT cells, but it has been noted that they do not stain as well as PBS-57 loaded CD1d tetramers.
