Anti-Mycobacterial 30-kDa [3A8]

Invented by Professor Pranab K Das

Info

Catalogue Number 154075
Applications ELISA IHC WB
Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets Mycobacterial 30-kDa
Reactivity Mycobacterium bovis
Relevance Proteins of the antigen 85 complex in the 30-kDa region secreted by live mycobacteria are important in the immune response against mycobacterial infections and play an important biological role in the host-parasite interaction. This antibody recognises antigens 85A (MPT44), 85B (MPT59) and 85C (MPT45). This antibody stains the paucibacillary borderline and tuberculoid leprosy lesions.
Host Mouse
Immunogen 30-kDa antigen isolated from M.tuberculosis (RIVM-strain 7114)
Positive Control M.tuberculosis
Subclass IgG1
Myeloma Used P3X63Ag8.653
Recommended Growing Conditions RPMI 1640
Strain Balb/c
Notes Reacts with M.bovis BCG, M.tuberculosis complex and M.leprae. Does not react with E.coli. The 3A8 epitope has been shown to be present on CD68+ macrophages in the granulomas of tuberculoid leprosy. In lesions from reversal reaction the 3A8 epitope is more strongly expressed on CD1a+ dendritic Langerhans cells both in the epidermis and dermis.
Research Area Bacteriology, Immunology, Microbiology
