The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 11 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 14 kDa).
Ly6C is a monocyte/macrophage and endothelial cell differentiation antigen regulated by interferon gamma, and may play a role in the development and maturation of lymphocytes. It is a member of the Ly6 multigene family of type V glycophosphatidylinositol anchored cell surface proteins. It is expressed on bone marrow cells, monocytes/macrophages, neutrophils, endothelial cells, and T cell subsets. Mice with the Ly6.2 allotype (e.g., AKR, C57BL, C57BR, C57L, DBA/2, PL, SJL, SWR, 129) have subsets of CD4+Ly6C+ and CD8+Ly6C+ cells, while Ly6.1 strains (e.g., A, BALB/c, CBA, C3H/He, DBA/1, NZB) have only CD8+Ly6C+ lymphocytes.
We hypothesize that the 11 kDa represents the mature form of Mouse Lymphocyte antigen 6C precursor. Ly6c has a 26 amino acid signal peptide which, when cleaved, gives an expected molecular weight of 11 kDa.
