Isotype
Mouse IgG1
Specificity
The antibody MEM-G/4 reacts with an extracellular epitope of denaturated HLA-G heavy chain. The recognized epitope is present only on HLA-G1, -G2 and -G5 molecules. HLA-G belongs to the MHC Class I molecules (MHC Class Ib; nonclassical) and it is expressed on the surface of trophoblast cells.

1 mg/ml
Preparation
Purified by protein-A affinity chromatography.
Formulation
Phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.4, 15 mM sodium azide

Antigen description
Human leukocyte antigen G (HLA-G), belonging to MHC class I glycoproteins, plays important roles in both physiological and pathological immunotolerance. It gives an inhibitory signal to cytotoxic T cells, NK cells, monocytes, and some other immune cells. It also induces regulatory T cells and anti-inflammatory macrophages. HLA-G is important e.g. for maternal tolerance to the fetus, and for immunomodulation in particular adult tissues, such as in cornea, pancreatic islets, thymus and other. On the other hand, it is expressed in many solid and hematologic malignancies, where it contributes to evasion of the immune surveillance. HLA-G expression pattern in cancer is an important prognostic factor regarding a poor clinical outcome. Unlike most other MHC glycoproteins, HLA-G acts as an immune checkpoint molecule rather than as an antigen presenting molecule. It concerns both transmembrane and soluble HLA-G isoforms. Among other, HLA-G can promote Th2 immunological response and downregulate Th1 immunological response. For its benefits regarding allograft tolerance, including embryo implantation, soluble HLA-G (sHLA-G) can be used as a marker of developmental potential of embryos during the process of in vitro fertilization. Similarly, sHLA-G concentrations in maternal serum are decreased in preeclampsia. Transplanted patients with increased sHLA-G serum levels have improved allograft acceptance. On the other hand, increased sHLA-G can also indicate presence of malignant (sometimes also of benign) tumor cells. Another important topic is induction of HLA-G expression (sometimes associated with shedding of HLA-G from the cell surface) by some anti-cancer or anti-viral therapies, which can weaken the therapy effect. Monitoring of HLA-G in patients thus has a wide usage.

Western blotting analysis of human HLA-G using mouse monoclonal antibody MEM-G/4 on lysates of JEG-3 cell line and LNCaP cell line (negative control) under reducing and non-reducing conditions. Nitrocellulose membrane was probed with 2 µg/ml of mouse monoclonal antibody anti-HLA-G followed by IRDye800-conjugated anti-mouse secondary antibody. Specific bands were detected for HLA-G at approximately 42-46 kDa.
