Mouse monoclonal [14-4-4S] to MHC class II I E kappa (Phycoerythrin)
Phycoerythrin. Ex: 488nm, Em: 575nm
This antibody is specific to an epitope on mouse I-E? MHC class II alloantigen. The antibody reacts with the I-E? class II alloantigen on cells from mice of the H-2d, H-2p, and H-2r haplotypes. The antibody has also been reported to crossreact with the rat class II alloantigen RT1D.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

A major histocompatibility complex class II receptor. These display processed antigens from virally infected or transformed cells. Class II positive cells ('antigen presenting cells') can take up antigens from outside by endocytosis, degrade them into small peptides, and re export the peptides (now bound to MHC class II protein) to the cell surface. These peptide MHC class II complexes can then be recognized by specific CD4+ lymphocytes.
