MA1-81183 recognizes human beta 2 microglobulin, binding to a determinant available only when the chain is separated from the HLA heavy chain (the hidden determinant).
Beta 2 microglobulin is a component of MHC class I molecules, which are present on all nucleated cells. Levels of beta 2 microglobulin can be used to assess renal function in kidney transplant recipients. Also known as B2M, it has been suggested that this protein can be used as a prognostic marker for HIV infection.
