Description: The MIH12 monoclonal antibody reacts with human B7RP-1, also known as B7h, B7-H2, GL50 and ICOS Ligand. B7RP-1, a member of the B7 family, has a predicted molecular weight of approximately 40 kDa and belongs to the Ig superfamily. Human B7RP-1 is expressed by activated monocytes/macrophages. B7RP-1 binds to the ICOS molecule (AILIM, CRP-1) expressed by activated T cells. The interaction of ICOS/B7RP-1 plays an important role in the T cell costimulation pathway. Applications Reported: The MIH12 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This MIH12 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood monocyte-derived dendritic cells. This can be used at 5 µL (0.125 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. Excitation: 488-561 nm; Emission: 578 nm; Laser: Blue Laser, Green Laser, Yellow-Green Laser. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.Inducible co-stimulator ligand (ICOSL) is a specific ligand on antigen-presenting cells and cells of the peripheral tissue that binds to the inducible co-stimulator receptor (ICOS). ICOS belongs to the CD28/CD152 receptor family that regulates T-cell activation and function. ICOSL is expressed on monocytes, dendritic cells and B cells and can be induced by inflammatory stimuli in peripheral tissue. Binding to ICOSL delivers a co-stimulatory signal for T cell proliferation and cytokine secretion.
