The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 - 4 µg/ml.
Recommend PFA Fixation and Triton X-100 treatment
1/50 - 1/200. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
FunctionMyosins are actin-based motor molecules with ATPase activity. Unconventional myosins serve in intracellular movements. Their highly divergent tails are presumed to bind to membranous compartments, which would be moved relative to actin filaments. Precursor of the minor histocompatibility antigen HA-2. More generally, minor histocompatibility antigens (mHags) refer to immunogenic peptide which, when complexed with MHC, can generate an immune response after recognition by specific T-cells. The peptides are derived from polymorphic intracellular proteins, which are cleaved by normal pathways of antigen processing. The binding of these peptides to MHC class I or class II molecules and their expression on the cell surface can stimulate T-cell responses and thereby trigger graft rejection or graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation from HLA-identical sibling donor. GVHD is a frequent complication after bone marrow transplantation (BMT), due to mismatch of minor histocompatibility antigen in HLA-matched sibling marrow transplants. HA-2 is restricted to MHC class I HLA-A*0201.
Tissue specificitySpecifically expressed in hematopoietic cells.
Sequence similaritiesContains 1 IQ domain. Contains 1 myosin head-like domain.
Cellular localizationCell membrane. Localization at the membrane is not highly dependent on phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate levels. Released from the membrane in the presence of ATP. May be enriched in peripheral processes, such as microvilli or ruffles.
