Isotype IgG1
Specificity The antibody MEM-147 reacts with all human classical MHC Class I molecules in native cell-surface forms (e.g. it recognizes native HLA-A2 in cytofluorometry and immunoprecipitation but not in Western blotting). MHC Class I molecules (MHC Class Ia) are expressed on the surface of all human nucleated cell types.
The antibody MEM-147 is positive in Western blotting (non-reducing conditions) only with most HLA-B and HLA-C molecules, but not HLA-A. Reactivity is very similar to the classical antibody W6/32.
Cross-Reactivity (Details) Human
Purification Purified by protein-A affinity chromatography
Purity > 95 % (by SDS-PAGE)
Antigen
Alternative Name HLA-Class I (MICA Antibody Abstract)
Background HLA-class I major histocompatibility (MHC) antigens are intrinsic membrane glycoproteins expressed on nucleated cells and noncovalently associated with an invariant beta2 microglobulin. They carry foreign determinants important for immune recognition by cytotoxic T cells, thus important for anti-viral and anti-tumour defence. Human HLA-class I antigens are represented by HLA-A, HLA-B and HLA-C molecules.
Pathways Activation of Innate immune Response, Transition Metal Ion Homeostasis, Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) in Adaptive Immune Response
