General notesThis tandem dye is sensitive to photo-induced oxidation. Protect this reagent from light during storage and all handling steps. When staining cells with PE-Cy7-conjugated antibodies, always protect samples from light.
Storage instructionsShipped at 4°C. Store at +4°C.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use 0.25µg for 105-8 cells. Perform staining in a final volume of 100µl.
ab154459-Rat monoclonal IgG1, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
FunctionReceptor for MICA, MICB, ULBP1, ULBP2, ULBP3 (ULBP2>ULBP1>ULBP3) and ULBP4. Plays a role as a receptor for the recognition of MHC class I HLA-E molecules by NK cells and some cytotoxic T-cells. Involved in the immune surveillance exerted by T- and B-lymphocytes.
Tissue specificityNatural killer cells. Expressed on essentially all CD56+CD3- NK cells from freshly isolated PBMC. Also detected in gamma-delta cells and CD8+ alpha-beta T-cells. Expressed in interferon-producing killer dendritic cells (IKDCs).
