Immunotech (formerly AMAC) carries tons of mAbs against varied antigens.
Could you e-mail me a little about your project. We have several
antibodies against novel receptors found on CD8 T cells and NK cells
which are involved in cytotoxicity and signal in NK but not CD8 T cells.
If you are interested in checking these out in your system we can get you
