Description

Description

The 6D4 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the human MHC class I polypeptide-related sequence A (MICA, aka /PERB11.1) and B (MICB. aka /PERB11.2) proteins. These ñ70 kDa transmembrane glycoproteins are homologs of the major histocompatibility complex class I molecules although they lackassociation with β2 microglobulin. The MHC class I-related MICA and MICB chains are expressed by some gut epithelial cells in vivo. MICA and MICB expression by other epithelial cells and cell types, including fibroblasts and endothelial cells, is induced by stress, eg, stress caused by bacterial and viral infections, autoimmunity or cellular transformation. Epithelial cell expression of MICA and MICB has also been detected in transplanted kidneys and pancreas that show histological signs of rejection and or cellular injury. This suggests their potential role in transplant immunopathology. MICA and MICB are ligands for NKG2D (CD314), an activating receptor expressed by natural killer (NK) cells,γδ T cells,CD8+ andsome CD4+ αβ T cells. The 6D4 antibody reportedly blocks NKG2D-positive NK cell- and T cell-mediated cytotoxicity against MICA/B-positive target cells.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV421 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 407nm and Em Max at 421nm, BD Horizon BV421 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the standard Pacific Blue™ filter set (eg, 450/50nm filter). BD Horizon BV421 conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting a 10 fold improvement in brightness compared to Pacific Blue conjugates. BV421 is a polymer-based dye excited by the violet laser and is one of the brightest fluorochromes offered by BD Biosciences. Conjugates are typically 10 times brighter than Pacific Blue™ conjugates and are often as bright as or brighter than PE conjugates. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, BD Horizon BV421, Pacific Blue™, and BD Horizon™ V450 cannot be used simultaneously.
