|Purification||Purified IgG prepared by affinity chromatography on Protein G from tissue culture supernatant|
|Immunogen||Rat thymocyte membrane glycoproteins.|
|Shelf Life||18 months from date of despatch.|
|Target/Specificity||Mouse anti-MHC Class II H-2I-Ak/s antibody, clone OX-6 recognizes a monomorphic determinant of the rat RT1B MHC class II antigen present on B lymphocytes, dendritic cells, some macrophages and certain epithelial cells.Mouse anti-MHC Class II H-2I-Ak/s antibody, clone OX-6 does not react with the rat BDIX strain due to a defect in RT1B expression (Male, D. K. et al.).MCA2687A647 also cross reacts with a polymorphic determinant on mouse strains of the H-2 haplotypes k and s. Analysis of recombinant mouse strains has mapped the OX-6 determinant to the H-2I-A region (McMaster & Williams 1979) and (Maleet al.1987).The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) is a cluster of genes that are important in the immune response to infections. In mice, this complex is referred to as the H-2 region. In rats, this complex is referred to as the RT1 region. This product is routinely tested in flow cytometry on rat splenocytes.|
