MICA/B antibody was raised against mICA transfected C1R cells.
Specific for nonclassical MHC class I chain A (MICA) and nonclassical MHC class I chain MICB (MICB). MICA and MICB are stress inducible antigens, which are closely related and appear functionally indistinguishable. MICA and MICB are ligands for NKG2D, an activating receptor on most natural killer (NK) cells, CD8 T cells and gamma delta T cells. MICA is principally expressed on intestinal epithelium, and several epithelial tumors. Expression may be induced to high surface levels by heat shock, oxidative stress, and virus infection. Clone 6D4 is reported to inhibit the cytotoxicity of NK cells stimulated by IFN alpha-treated dendritic cells. XXX recommend the use of MCA2403EL for such studies.
The applications listed have been tested for the unconjugated form of this product. Other forms have not been tested. Flow Cytometry: Use 10 ul of the suggested working dilution to label 1x10^6 cells in 100 ul. Method sheets are available on request. Membrane permeabilization is required for this application.
