FACS analysis of cell surface CD160 expression by an anti-human CD160 antibody and isotype control antibody
CD160 Cell Line Background
CD160, a glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored member of the immunoglobulin superfamily, is expressed on peripheral blood NK cells and CD8+ T lymphocytes with cytolytic activity.
The CD160 molecule (CD160) is also known as NK1, BY55, or NK28.
Recombinant Cell Line Generation
This 293T human CD160 cell line was generated using pLVX-puro vector with human CD160 gene sequence.

Thaw the vial as soon as possible upon receipt to insure its viability.
- Thaw the frozen vial in a 37°C water bath for 1-2 minutes.
- Transfer the vial into biosafety cabinet. Wipe the surface with 70% ethanol and drop the cell suspension gently into a centrifuge tube containing 9.0 mL complete culture medium.
- Spin at ~ 125 x g, for 5- 7 minutes at room temperature.
- Resuspend cell pellet with the appropriate volume of complete medium and transfer the cell suspension into a T25 culture flask.
- Incubate the culture at 37°, 5% CO2 incubator or refer to the specific culture condition, if possible.
