Description

Description

Description: The MIH18 monoclonal antibody reacts with human B7-DC, also known as PD-L2. B7-DC, a recently identified member of the B7 family, has a predicted molecular weight of approximately 25 kDa and belongs to the Ig superfamily. B7-DC is primarily expressed by subpopulations of dendritic cells and monocytes/macrophages. Although B7-DC has structural and sequence similarities to the B7 family, it does not bind CD28/CTLA-4, rather it is a ligand for PD-1. The interactions between PD-1 and B7-DC/PD-L2 have been reported to be involved in costimulation or suppression of T cell proliferation depending on state of cellular activation. MIH18 is a useful tool for studies to elucidate the exact function of B7-DC/PD-L2 in APC/T cell interaction and to characterize the expression pattern of this molecule in humans. MIH18 is a blocking antibody. Applications Reported: The MIH18 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: The MIH18 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mature dendritic cells and normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.25 µg per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test.

It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered. Cell-mediated immune responses are initiated by T lymphocytes that are themselves stimulated by co gnate peptides bound to MHC molecules on antigen-presenting cells (APC). T-cell activation is generally self-limited as activated T cells express receptors such as PD-1 (also known as PDCD-1) that mediate inhibitory signals from the APC. PD-1 can bind two different but related ligands, PDL-1 and PDL-2, both of which are thought act as a negative regulator of T cell activation. However, it has been suggested that PDL-2 can act to stimulate an immunogenic response through and alternative receptor from PD-1. At least three isoforms of PDL-2 are known to exist; this antibody is specific to the largest isoform. PDL-2 antibody has no cross-reactivity to PDL-2.
