Description: The W6/32 monoclonal antibody reacts with the human major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I, HLA-A, B, C. MHC class I antigens associated with beta 2-microglobulin are expressed by all human nucleated cells and are central in cell-mediated immune response and tumor surveillance. W6/32 mAb recognizes a non-polymorphic epitope shared among products of the HLA-A, B, and C loci and immunoprecipitates both 43 kDa and 11-12 kDa chains. Crossreactivity is also seen in baboon, rhesus and cynomolgus monkey.
Applications Reported: The W6/32 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This W6/32 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 µL (1 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.
Excitation: 488 nm; Emission: 520 nm; Laser: Blue Laser.
Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
HLA-class I antigens are widely distributed on human nucleated cells. The intensity of HLA-ABC maybe altered in pathological states e.g. malignant cells may lose HLA-ABC, whereas hepatocytes in alcoholic hepatitis, biliary cirrhosis and chronic active hepatitis may show enhanced expression of HLA-ABC.
