|Specificity:||The antibody MEM-E/07 recognized native surface-expressed HLA-E, but not denaturated heavy chain of HLA-E. HLA-E belongs to the MHC Class I molecules (MHC Class Ib; nonclassical) and it is expressed on many types of the human cells.
The published results revealed that the antibody cross-reacts with some classical MHC Class I molecules (MHC Class Ia): HLA-B7 (strongly), HLA-B8 (moderately), HLA-B27, -B44 (weakly).
|Immunogen:||Bacterially expressed recombinant HLA-E refolded with beta2-microglobulin and peptide.|
|Preparation:||The purified antibody is conjugated with Biotin-LC-NHS under optimum conditions. The reagent is free of unconjugated biotin.|
|Storage Buffer:||Phosphate buffered saline (PBS) with 15 mM sodium azide, approx. pH 7.4|
|Storage / Stability:||Store at 2-8°C. Do not freeze. Do not use after expiration date stamped on vial label.|
|Usage:||Biotinylated antibody is designed for indirect immunofluorescence analysis by Flow Cytometry.
Suggested working dilution is 2 microgram/ml. Indicated dilution is recommended starting point for use of this product. Working concentrations should be determined by the investigator.
|Expiration:||See vial label|
|Lot Number:||See vial label|
