Description: This 13A2 monoclonal antibody reacts with human killer cell lectin-like receptor subfamily G, member 1 (KLRG1), a type II transmembrane inhibitor receptor of the C-type lectin superfamily that contains an ITIM domain. This inhibitory receptor is expressed on subsets of gamma-delta T cells, NK (CD56 im), CD8+ and CD4+ T Cells. KLRG1 is expressed primarily by cells with an effector/memory phenotype that are short-lived, but capable of immediate effector cell function. Cadherin-E, -N, and -R are ligands for KLRG1. Cadherin/KLRG1 interaction inhibits cytolytic activity and proliferation. The percentage of KLRG1 positive cells can vary considerably, depending on antigen experience. The clones 13F12F2 and 13A2 appear to recognize a similar epitope based on cross-blocking studies. Applications Reported: This 13A2 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis. Applications Tested: This 13A2 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 µL (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. Excitation: 488-561 nm; Emission: 578 nm; Laser: Blue Laser, Green Laser, Yellow-Green Laser. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.KLRG1 (Killer cell lectin-like receptor G1, MAFA, 2F1-Ag) is a homodimeric member of the lectin-like type 2 transmembrane receptor family whose members contain characteristic immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motifs (ITIMs) in their cytoplasmic domains. These ITIMs interact with the SH2 domains of protein phosphatases such as SHP-1. KLRG1 is an inhibitory receptor that is expressed on natural killer (NK) cells and certain T cells. NK cells are involved in the lysis of tumor cells and virus-infected cells, and mediate humoral and cell-mediated immune responses.
