Protein Name & Synonyms:
IgG concentration 1.0 mg/ml
This product recognizes murine CD94, a 70kD cell surface glycoprotein expressed primarily by mouse natural killer (NK) cells. The murine CD94 molecule forms heterodimers with NKG2A, C or E subunits to form the CD94/NKG2 receptor.
In mice the CD94/NKG2 receptor recognizes Qa-1b, a non-classical MHC class 1 molecule. CD94/NKG2 receptors may play an important role in self-tolerance of NK cells during fetal and neonatal life.
N.B. Recent reports suggest that DBA/2J mice do not express cell surface CD94/NKG2A receptors, see Vance, R.E. et al. for details.
Store at +4 °C or at -20 °C if preferred.
This product should be stored undiluted.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
If stored in this manner, this product is stable for 18 months after receipt.
