As their name suggests, T regulatory cells are a subset of T cells that work to suppress the activation and expansion of effector T cells in the immune system. Tregs are critical in distinguishing self-antigens and maintaining immune tolerance.
The study of Tregs for understanding and treating autoimmune diseases and cancer is still in its infancy, and researchers have historically had a difficult time procuring enough Tregs. We now have two types of research-ready Tregs that can be shipped overnight for immediate use in immunology studies.
Explore the usage scenarios and availability of each type of Treg below, or request matched sets of induced and natural Tregs from the same donor.
Induced Tregs (iTregs)
Differentiating and culturing Tregs in the lab gives us the ability to develop larger batches of Tregs from more donors. Our induced Tregs utilize the most widely accepted phenotype with co-expression of CD4 and CD25 and the absence of CD127.
Induced Tregs are a cost-effective option when you need a large quantity of cells and a uniform lot.
Natural Tregs (nTregs)
If you require Tregs isolated directly from peripheral blood, natural Tregs are the way to go. nTregs are ideal if you’re concerned about how induced Tregs will respond in your system, or if you are interested in starting your own Treg cultures.
Our nTregs are CD4+, CD25+, CD127 low/negative, and FoxP3 positive.
All the T Cells You Need
Natural and induced T regulatory cells are just some of the research-ready immune cell products we can source for you. See more types of T cells in our inventory here, or let us know if you have any specific research questions we can answer.
