Anti-HLA-A2 antibodies, human

Anti-HLA-A2 antibodies, human

Clone: REA517 | Dilution: 1:11
Clone REA517 recognizes the class I human leukocyte antigen A2 (HLA-A2). Expressed on the surface of most nucleated cells, class I molecules are heterodimeric molecules and consist of a type I integral membrane α heavy chain and a soluble β2 microglobulin protein. The extracellular region of the heavy chain further consists of three domains, one of which comprises the peptide binding groove. Antigens binding to class I molecules are 8–10 amino acids long and play an important role in recognition of virus infected and malignant cells by cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs). In addition, class I molecules interact with NK cell receptors to modulate the activity of NK cells.
Additional information: Clone REA517 displays negligible binding to Fc receptors.
