Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/1000 - 1/10000. Predicted molecular weight: 34 kDa.
IHC-P 1/100 - 1/250. Perform antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
Flow Cyt 1/150.
ICC/IF 1/500.
  • Application notesIs unsuitable for IP.
  • Target

    • FunctionPlays a critical role in MHC class II antigen processing by stabilizing peptide-free class II alpha/beta heterodimers in a complex soon after their synthesis and directing transport of the complex from the endoplasmic reticulum to the endosomal/lysosomal system where the antigen processing and binding of antigenic peptides to MHC class II takes place. Serves as cell surface receptor for the cytokine MIF.
    • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 thyroglobulin type-1 domain.
    • Cellular localizationCell membrane. Endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Golgi apparatus > trans-Golgi network. Endosome. Lysosome. Transits through a number of intracellular compartments in the endocytic pathway. It can either undergo proteolysis or reach the cell membrane.

    • Confocal image of ab108393 staining CD74 in the RAMOS (human Burkitt's lymphoma) cell line by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with 4% Paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 in PBS. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/500) and an Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit  IgG polyclonal (ab150077) was used as the secondary antibody at a dilution of 1/1000.

      DAPI was used ad a nuclear counterstain at 1/200.
