Rat monoclonal [M5/114.15.2] to MHC Class II IA + IE (FITC)
FITC. Ex: 493nm, Em: 528nm
ab93561 reacts with the mouse MHC Class II, both I-A and I-E subregion-encoded glycoproteins (I-Ab, I-Ad, I-Aq, I-Ed, I-Ek, not I-Af, I-Ak, or I-As). It detects a polymorphic determinant present on B cells, monocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells, and activated T lymphocytes from mice carrying the H-2b, H-2d, H-2q, H-2p, H-2r and H-2u but not from mice carrying the H-2s or H-2f haplotypes.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use at an assay dependent concentration.
The MHC Class II IA + IE molcules are expressed on antigen presenting cells (including B cells) and a subset of T cells from H-2 b, d, q, r bearing mice and are involved in antigen presentation to T cells expressing CD3/TCR and CD4 proteins.
