DescriptionDescription: The 6D4 monoclonal antibody reacts with the human major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I chain-related (MIC), MICA and MICB proteins. MICA and MICB are related proteins of 83% amino acid similarity, and show homology with classical human leukocyte antigen (HLA) molecules. The structure of MICA and MICB are similar to classical HLA class I chains, however they do not bind beta2 microglobulin or bind peptide typical of HLA class I. MICA and MICB are expressed on the cell surface of endothelial cells, fibroblasts, gastric epithelium and PHA-stimulated T cells, and act as a ligand for NKGD2 expressed on the surface of NK cells, gammadelta T cells and alpha beta CD8+ T cells. There is evidence to suggest that human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) subverts NK cell detection by inhibiting the function of MICB. Furthermore, MICA and MICB expression has been detected in several epithelial tumours isolated from breast, lung, ovary, prostate, colon and kidney.Applications Reported: This 6D4 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.Applications Tested: This 6D4 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of HeLa cells. This can be used at 5 μL (0.25 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.Excitation: 488 nm; Emission: 519 nm; Laser: Blue Laser.Filtration: 0.2μm post-manufacturing filtered.
