|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.

|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.|
