Technical Data
M3886-12
MHC Class 1 HLA ABC
Description:
Human MHC class I antigens (HLA-A, B and C) are expressed constitutively on all nucleated cells such as lymphocytes, thymocytes, granulocytes, and bone marrow cells. They are absent on erythrocytes. MHC class I antigens play a role in class I MHC-associated antigen presentation, inhibition of NK cell cytotoxicity, tumor surveillance, and tissue allotransplantation.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Immunohistochemistry: Frozen only. Acetone fixation recommended.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Positive Control:
Human lymphocytes. Tonsil and lymph node.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
