|Purification||Purified IgG prepared by affinity chromatography on Protein G from tissue culture supernatant|
|Immunogen||Porcine alveolar macrophages.|
|Shelf Life||18 months from date of despatch.|
|Target/Specificity||Mouse anti-Pig CD11a, clone BL1H8 recognizes porcine CD11a, binding to a conformational epitope on the alpha chain of LFA-1 (CD11a/CD18), expressed on a range of cells including peripheral blood lymphocytes, monocytes, granulocytes and alveolar macrophages. Clone BL1H8 immunoprecipitates two bands of 170 kDa (CD11a) and 95 kDa (CD18) from porcine alveolar lysates, pre-clearance of the lysates completely removed the 170 kDa band , strongly suggesting the epitope for this antibody is located on the CD11a chain, although some involvement of residues on the LFA-1 β chain could not be formally ruled out (Alvarezet al.2000). BL1H8 was clustered as porcine CD11a at the Third International Workshop on Swine Leukocyte Differentiation Antigens (Haversonet al.2001).Mouse anti-pig CD11a, clone BL1H8 is reported to inhibit Con-A driven T-cell proliferation and the mixed lymphocyte reaction (Alvarezet al.2000).|
