Technical Data
HLA Class 1 Antigen A2 (PE)
The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) is a cluster of genes that are important in the immune response to infections. In humans, this complex is referred to as the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) region. There are 3 major MHC class I proteins encoded by the HLA which are HLA A, HLA B and HLA C.
The HLA A gene is part of the human HLA complex on chromosome 6 and there are a large number of variant alleles of this gene.

Suitable for use in Flow Cytometry. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Flow Cytometry: Neat. Use 10ul to label 10e6 cells or 100ul whole blood.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by researcher.

Recommended Negative Control:
I1904-84H3: IgG2b Negative Control (PE)

NS1 myeloma cells with spleen cells from Balb/c mice.

Storage and Stability:
Store product at 4°C before and after reconstitution. DO NOT FREEZE! Lyophilized and reconstituted products are stable for 12 months at 4°C after receipt. Reconstitute lyophilized powder with sterile ddH2O prior to use and store remainder as an undiluted liquid. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer. Caution: PE conjugates are sensitive to light. For maximum recovery of product centrifuge the original vial prior to removing the cap.

Papain solubilized HLA Class 1 Antigen A2 (HLA-A2)
Purified by Protein G affinity chromatography.
Supplied as a lyophilized powder from PBS, 1% BSA, 5% sucrose, 0.09% sodium azide. Labeled with R-Phycoerythrin (PE). Reconstitute with 1ml sterile ddH2O.
Recognizes the human HLA-A2 histocompatibility antigen. The epitope recognized by this antibody has been studied extensively and would appear to include the carboxy-terminus of the alpha-2 helix and a turn on one of the underlying beta strands.
Intended for research use only. Not for use in human, therapeutic, or diagnostic applications.
