HLA-ABC Mouse anti-Human, Brilliant Violet 605, Clone: G46-2.6, BD Optibuild
Mouse Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: BD Biosciences 740407
The Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) complex is the human version of the MHC, helping the immune system distinguish the body's own proteins versus those from foreign invaders, such as viruses. Humans have three main MHC class I genes, known as HLA-A, HLA-B and HLA-C. Major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecules, which are widely found on the surface of nucleated cells, function by binding peptides and displaying them on the cell surface to cytotoxic T-cells. Intracellular degradation of cytosolic proteins by the proteasome generates many of the peptides that load MHC class I molecules. MHC class I may also serve as an inhibitory ligand for natural killer (NK) cell receptors (KIR, Killer Immunoglobulin-like Receptors), which viruses may modulate expression levels for to evade immune detection. The G46-2.6 monoclonal antibody binds to a monomorphic epitope on the alpha chain of HLA-A, HLA-B and HLA-C.
This antibody is conjugated to BD Horizon BV605 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 407-nm and Em Max of 602-nm, BD Horizon BV605 can be excited by a violet laser and detected with a standard 610/20-nm filter set. BD Horizon BV605 is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BV421 and an acceptor dye with an Em max at 605-nm. Due to the excitation of the acceptor dye by the green (532 nm) and yellow-green (561 nm) lasers, there will be significant spillover into the PE and BD Horizon PE-CF594 detectors off the green or yellow-green lasers. BD Horizon BV605 conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting brightness equivalent to PE conjugates and can be used as a third color off of the violet laser.
