Reagent Type: 

Ligand

Description: 

The a-C-galactosylceramide analogue of a-galactosylceramide is a potent stimulator of natural killer T cells. Through a collaboration with Dr. Richard Franck at Hunter College of CUNY, the NIH Tetramer Facility is offering purified synthetic a-C-galactosylceramide for in vitro NK T cell activation. We are not able to provide a-C-galactosylceramide-loaded CD1d tetramers due to the instability of the reagent.
