|Applications||ELISA FACS IHC WB|
|Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets||Human Leukocyte Antigen DR ß chain 1 (1st domain, monomorphic, MHC class II)|
Monoclonal antibody which binds all DR and DP antigens, with use in tissue and HLA typing.
Background and Research Application
Human Leukocyte Antigens (HLA) are highly polymorphic proteins that are involved in the presentation of antigens to the T-cell receptor. There are two classes of HLA antigens, class I (HLA-A, HLA-B and HLA-C) and class II (HLA-D). They are expressed primarily on antigen presenting cells such as B lymphocytes, monocytes, macrophages, thymic epithelial cells and activated T lymphocytes. The human MHC class II molecules bind intracellularly processed peptides and present them to T helper cells. They therefore have a critical role in the initiation of the immune response.
DA2 may be used for tissue typing. This antibody will bind all DR and DP antigens except DR7, and can aid with HLA typing.

Points of Interest
DA2 will detect dimers and the beta chain by western blot. DA2 will bind all DR and DP antigens except DR7.
