FC - Quality tested

Recommended Usage:

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is ≤ 0.25 µg per 106 cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

YAC-1 cell line stained with

YAC-1 cell line stained with CX1 PE


RAE-1 gamma is one of the five member RAE-family.Together with H60 they were identified as ligands for the mouse NKG2D molecules.Expression of RAE-1 is low or absent in normal adult tissue, but can be upreulgated by retinoid acid and constitutively expressed on some tumors.This antibody has weak crossreativity with RAE-1 alpha and RAE-1 beta.

Other Names: Retinoid acid early inducible gamma
Structure: RAE is a family of GPI-anchord surface protein consisting of alpha, beta, gamma, delta and epsilon. They share strong homology within the family and weak homology with MHC class 1 molecule.
Distribution: Expression of RAE-1 is low or absent on normal, adult tissue, but consititutively expressed on some tumors and can be induced by retinoid acid.
Function: As ligands for the mouse activating NKG2D expressed by NK cells
Ligand Receptor: NKG2D
