CC chemokine receptor 8 (CCR8) belongs to the class A of G protein-coupled receptor. It is highly expressed on Treg and T helper 2 (TH2) cells recruited to the inflammation site and is implicated in allergy and asthma. Recently, CCR8+Treg cells have been suggested to be a master regulator in the immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment; therefore, developing sensitive monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) for CCR8 has been desired. This study established a specific and sensitive mAb for mouse CCR8 (mCCR8), which is useful for flow cytometry by using the Cell-Based Immunization and Screening (CBIS) method. The established anti-mCCR8 mAb, C8Mab-2 (rat IgG2b, kappa), reacted with mCCR8-overexpressed Chinese hamster ovary-K1 (CHO/mCCR8) cells and P388 (mouse lymphoid neoplasma) or J774-1 (mouse macrophage-like) cells, which express endogenous mCCR8 by flow cytometry. C8Mab-2, which was established by the CBIS method, could be useful for elucidating the mCCR8-related biological response by flow cytometry.
