MA5-17778 targets I-Ad in FACS applications and shows reactivity with Mouse samples.
The MA5-17778 immunogen is bDF splenocytes.
The monoclonal antibody ER-TR3 reacts with mouse major histocompatibility complex class II (MHC class II), also know as I-A or I-E. MHC class II molecules are heterodimers of non-covalently associated alpha (31-34 kDa) and beta (26-29 kDa) chains. Major histocompatibility complex class II antigen presentation requires the participation of lysosomal proteases in two convergent processes. First, the antigens endocytosed by the antigen presenting cells must be broken down into antigenic peptides. Second, class II molecules are synthesized with their peptide-binding site blocked by invariant chain (Ii), and they aquire the capacity to bind antigens only after Ii has been degraded in the compartments where peptides reside. MHC class II molecules present exogenously derived antigen to CD4+ T lymphocytes, which are usually T helper cells. CD4 interacts with non-polymorphic residues of MHC class II.
