Description: The HI149 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD1a, a 49 kDa protein expressed by cortical thymocytes and dendritic cells including Langerhans cells. The CD1 family of proteins share some structural and functional characteristics with the MHC class I molecules; however, members of the CD1 family are not polymorphic. Similar to MHC class I, CD1a associates with the beta2-microglobulin and is thought to play a role in antigen presentation.
Applications Reported: The HI149 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This HI149 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of MOLT-4 cells. This can be used at 5 µL (0.5 µg) per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test.

CD1a, together with CD1b and c, belongs to group 1 of CD1 glycoproteins. These proteins serve as antigen-presenting molecules for a subset of T cells that responds to specific lipids and glycolipids found in the cell walls of bacterial pathogens or self-glycolipid antigens such as gangliosides, and they have also roles in antiviral immunity. Unlike CD1b, CD1a is excluded from late endosomal compartments and instead traffics independently in the recycling pathway of the early endocytic system, and CD1a antigen presentation is independent upon vesicular acidification.
