HLA-E Mouse anti-Human, Functional Grade, Clone: 3D12HLA-E, eBioscience™
Mouse Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Life Technologies LS16995385
Description: The monoclonal antibody 3D12 (HLA-E) recognizes human HLA-E, a member of the Human Leukocyte Antigen family. HLA-E is a MHC Class IB member, which has a specialized role in NK cell recognition. Binding of a restricted set of peptides derived from other Class I leader sequences to the HLA-E and B2M (beta2 microglobulin) complex leads to interaction with NKG2A on NK cells. This binding protects the HLA-G-expressing cell from NK cell killing. HLA-E expression is ubiquitous. Applications Reported: This 3D12HLA-E antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This 3D12HLA-E antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.5 µg per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest. Storage and handling: Use in a sterile environment. Filtration: 0.2 μm post-manufacturing filtered. Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE. Endotoxin Level: Less than 0.001 ng/μg antibody, as determined by LAL assay. Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC.HLA-E belongs to the HLA class I heavy chain paralogues. This class I molecule is a heterodimer consisting of a heavy chain and a light chain (beta-2 microglobulin). The heavy chain is anchored in the membrane. HLA-E binds a restricted subset of peptides derived from the leader peptides of other class I molecules. The heavy chain is approximately 45 kDa and its gene contains 8 exons. Exon one encodes the leader peptide, exons 2 and 3 encode the alpha1 and alpha2 domains, which both bind the peptide, exon 4 encodes the alpha3 domain, exon 5 encodes the transmembrane region, and exons 6 and 7 encode the cytoplasmic tail.
