anti-HLA G antibody [87G] (FITC)

anti-HLA G antibody [87G] (FITC) for Flow cytometry and Human

Immune System antibody

Overview

Product Description FITC-conjugated Mouse Monoclonal antibody [87G] recognizes HLA G
Tested Reactivity Hu
Species Does Not React With Ms, Rat
Tested Application FACS
Specificity The clone 87G recognizes both membrane-bound and soluble forms of HLA-G (HLA-G1 and HLA-G5). HLA-G belongs to the MHC Class I molecules (MHC Class Ib; nonclassical) and it is expressed on the surface of trophoblast cells.
87G blocks interaction of HLA-G with inhibitory receptors.
Host Mouse
Clonality Monoclonal
Clone 87G
Isotype IgG2a
Target Name HLA G
Antigen Species Human
Immunogen HLA-B27 transgenic mice were imunized with H-2 identical murine cells transfected with and expressing genes encoding HLA-G and human beta2-microglobulin.
Conjugation FITC
Full Name major histocompatibility complex, class I, G
Alternate Names HLA G antigen; MHC class I antigen G; HLA class I histocompatibility antigen, alpha chain G; MHC-G

GeneID: 3135 Human HLA-G

Swiss-port # P17693 Human HLA class I histocompatibility antigen, alpha chain G

Gene Symbol HLA-G
Gene Full Name major histocompatibility complex, class I, G
Background HLA-G belongs to the HLA class I heavy chain paralogues. This class I molecule is a heterodimer consisting of a heavy chain and a light chain (beta-2 microglobulin). The heavy chain is anchored in the membrane. HLA-G is expressed on fetal derived placental cells. The heavy chain is approximately 45 kDa and its gene contains 8 exons. Exon one encodes the leader peptide, exons 2 and 3 encode the alpha1 and alpha2 domain, which both bind the peptide, exon 4 encodes the alpha3 domain, exon 5 encodes the transmembrane region, and exon 6 encodes the cytoplasmic tail.

Function Involved in the presentation of foreign antigens to the immune system. Plays a role in maternal tolerance of the fetus by mediating protection from the deleterious effects of natural killer cells, cytotoxic T-lymphocytes, macrophages and mononuclear cells. [UniProt]
