Technical Data
M3885-48F
MHC Class 1 (FITC)
Description:
Human MHC Class I (HLA-A, B & C) molecules are expressed on nearly all nucleated cells. MHC Class I molecules consist of heterodimers of a highly polymorphic transmembrane a chain and an invariant b chain. MHC Class I molecules bind to endogenously synthesized peptides of about 8-10 amino acids which are presented to CD8+ T cells. Recent evidence now indicates exogenously derived peptides are also presented by MHC Class I molecules.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Flow Cytometry, ELISA and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Flow Cytometry: 1:50 (80ul/test) Antibody (whole molecule) is cytotoxic in the presence of complement.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Flourescein/IgG molar ratio: 7.4

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage, store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 6 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
