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 ≤ 1.0 µg per 106 cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Ly49G is a type II transmembrane protein belonging to the family of Ly49 proteins, each having specificity for a small repertoire of MHC I alleles that are generally recognized in a peptide-independent manner.   The Ly49 family of MHC class I receptors shows a high degree of variability between mouse strains.  It is expressed on a subset of NK cells and some NKT cell lines.  The AT8 antibody reacts with the Ly49G receptor from BALB/c, 129/J, 129Sv/J, SJL, FVB/N, A/J, C3H/HeJ, C3H/HeNCr, CBA/J, and CBA/NCr mice.

Other Names: Ly-49G, Ly49g, Killer cell lectin-like receptor 7, Klra7
Structure: A type II transmembrane protein belonging to Ly49 family.
Distribution: Subset of NK cells and some NKT cell lines
Function: Allele-specific MHC recognition
Ligand Receptor: MHC class I molecules
