CD94 antibodies

CD94 antibodies

Clone: REA113
REA113 recognizes CD94, an approximately 45 kDa, single pass, type II transmembrane protein, which belongs to C-type lectin superfamily. CD94 associates covalently with NKG2 family members and forms disulfide-bonded heterodimers. CD94-NKG2 receptors bind HLA-E, the non-classical MHC class Ib molecule. Depending on the associated NKG2 member, CD94-NKG2 heterodimer transmits either activating or inhibitory signal. For example, via immunoreceptor tyrosine–based inhibitory motifs (ITIMs) containing NKG2A, CD94-NKG2A heterodimers inhibit NK cell cytotoxicity. Besides NK cells, expression of CD94-NKG2 heterodimers is also shown on NK-T cells and a small percentage of CD8 cells in mice, where the crosslinking of CD94-NKG2 was shown to reduce the level of spontaneous apoptosis. Additional Information: Clone REA113 displays negligible binding to Fc receptors.

Applications

Reagent can be used for immunophenotyping by flow cytometry. Abnormal numbers of cells expressing this antigen or aberrant expression levels of the antigen can be expected in some disease states. It is important to understand the normal expression pattern for this antigen and its relationship to expression of other relevant antigens in order to perform appropriate analysis.
Expression of CD94 may be used as aid to diagnostic in the characterization of samples from individuals suspected with hematologic neoplasia.
