|Purification||Purified IgM prepared by affinity chromatography|
|Shelf Life||18 months from date of despatch.|
|Target/Specificity||Mouse anti-Human dendritic cells antibody, clone RFD1 recognizes an epitope within the class II MHC complex. In normal tissue mouse anti-human dendritic cells antibody, clone RFD1 identifies dendritic cells and a proportion of B lymphocytes. Within the macrophage/dendritic cell populations the epitope seen by RFD1 is co-expressed with RFD7 by a subset of cells that exhibit suppressive activity on T cell stimulation.Mouse anti-Human dendritic cells antibody, clone RFD1 does not bind to monocytes or cells of the granulocyte lineage.Mouse anti-Human dendritic cells antibody, clone RFD1 has been used for the induction of apoptosis via MHC Class II cross linking of gastric mucosa epithelial cells (Fanet al.1998).|
|Preservative & Stabilisers||0.09% Sodium Azide|
|Storage||Store at +4℃ or at -20 ℃.|
|Precautions||Anti-Human Dendritic Cells Antibody, clone RFD1 is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
