  • IHC-P-Leica - HLA-G Antibody (Center) AP8941c
    Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin-embedded Human placenta tissue using AP8941c performed on the Leica® BOND RXm. Tissue was fixed with formaldehyde at room temperature, antigen retrieval was by heat mediation with a EDTA buffer (pH9. 0). Samples were incubated with primary antibody(1:500) for 1 hours at room temperature. A undiluted biotinylated CRF Anti-Polyvalent HRP Polymer antibody was used as the secondary antibody.
  • WB - HLA-G Antibody (Center) AP8941c
    All lanes : Anti-HLA-G Antibody (Center) at 1:1000 dilution Lane 1: Jurkat whole cell lysate Lane 2: Raji whole cell lysate Lane 3: Ramos whole cell lysate Lane 4: Hela whole cell lysate Lysates/proteins at 20 µg per lane. Secondary Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG, (H+L), Peroxidase conjugated at 1/10000 dilution. Predicted band size : 38 kDa Blocking/Dilution buffer: 5% NFDM/TBST.
  • FC - HLA-G Antibody (Center) AP8941c
    Overlay histogram showing Ramos cells stained with AP8941c(green line). The cells were fixed with 2% paraformaldehyde (10 min). The cells were then icubated in 2% bovine serum albumin to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (AP8941c, 1:25 dilution) for 60 min at 37ºC. The secondary antibody used was Goat-Anti-Rabbit IgG, DyLight® 488 Conjugated Highly Cross-Adsorbed(OH191631) at 1/200 dilution for 40 min at 37ºC. Isotype control antibody (blue line) was rabbit IgG1 (1μg/1x10^6 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >10, 000 events was performed.

Protein Information
Name HLA-G {ECO:0000303|PubMed:1570318, ECO:0000312|HGNC:HGNC:4964}
Function Isoform 1: Non-classical major histocompatibility class Ib molecule involved in immune regulatory processes at the maternal-fetal interface (PubMed:23184984, PubMed:29262349, PubMed:19304799). In complex with B2M/beta-2 microglobulin binds a limited repertoire of nonamer self-peptides derived from intracellular proteins including histones and ribosomal proteins (PubMed:7584149, PubMed:8805247). Peptide-bound HLA-G-B2M complex acts as a ligand for inhibitory/activating KIR2DL4, LILRB1 and LILRB2 receptors on uterine immune cells to promote fetal development while maintaining maternal-fetal tolerance (PubMed:23184984, PubMed:29262349, PubMed:16366734, PubMed:19304799, PubMed:20448110, PubMed:27859042). Upon interaction with KIR2DL4 and LILRB1 receptors on decidual NK cells, it triggers NK cell senescence-associated secretory phenotype as a molecular switch to promote vascular remodeling and fetal growth in early pregnancy (PubMed:23184984, PubMed:29262349, PubMed:16366734, PubMed:19304799). Through interaction with KIR2DL4 receptor on decidual macrophages induces proinflammatory cytokine production mainly associated with tissue remodeling (PubMed:19304799). Through interaction with LILRB2 receptor triggers differentiation of type 1 regulatory T cells and myeloid- derived suppressor cells, both of which actively maintain maternal-fetal tolerance (PubMed:20448110, PubMed:27859042). May play a role in balancing tolerance and antiviral-immunity at maternal-fetal interface by keeping in check the effector functions of NK, CD8+ T cells and B cells (PubMed:10190900, PubMed:11290782, PubMed:24453251). Reprograms B cells toward an immune suppressive phenotype via LILRB1 (PubMed:24453251). May induce immune activation/suppression via intercellular membrane transfer (trogocytosis), likely enabling interaction with KIR2DL4, which resides mostly in endosomes (PubMed:20179272, PubMed:26460007). Through interaction with the inhibitory receptor CD160 on endothelial cells may control angiogenesis in immune privileged sites (PubMed:16809620).
Cellular Location Isoform 1: Cell membrane; Single- pass type I membrane protein. Endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Early endosome membrane Isoform 2: Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein Isoform 4: Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein Isoform 6: Secreted Cell projection, filopodium membrane. Note=HLA-G trogocytosis from extravillous trophoblast's filopodia occurs in the majority of decidual NK cells.
Tissue Location Expressed in adult eye (PubMed:1570318). Expressed in immune cell subsets including monocytes, myeloid and plasmacytoid dendritic cells and regulatory T cells (Tr1)(at protein level) (PubMed:20448110). Secreted by follicular dendritic cell and follicular helper T cells (PubMed:24453251). Isoform 5: Detected in physiological fluids including amniotic fluid and serum (PubMed:11137219). Isoform 7: Expressed in placenta, amniotic membrane, skin cord blood and peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PubMed:11137219).

HLA-G belongs to the HLA class I heavy chain paralogues. This class I molecule is a heterodimer consisting of a heavy chain and a light chain (beta-2 microglobulin). The heavy chain is anchored in the membrane. HLA-G is expressed on fetal derived placental cells. The heavy chain is approximately 45 kDa and its gene contains 8 exons. Exon one encodes the leader peptide, exons 2 and 3 encode the alpha1 and alpha2 domain, which both bind the peptide, exon 4 encodes the alpha3 domain, exon 5 encodes the transmembrane region, and exon 6 encodes the cytoplasmic tail.
