DescriptionDescription: The monoclonal antibody 87G recognizes human HLA-G, a member of the Human Leukocyte Antigen family but as part of the nonclassical MHC type involved in inhibiting immune reponses. HLA-G has seven reported isoforms. The antibody 87G recognizes both HLA-G1 and the solube HLA-G5. Expression of HLA-G is found primarily in fetal trophoblast cells as they invade the maternal decidua thereby protecting the fetus from the maternal immune system. Like the highly mitotic trophoblast, abundant HLA-G protein expression has been identified in some tumors, including melanoma, breast carcinoma and renal carcinoma as well as CLL, AML and B-CLL. Some expression has also been found in pancreatic islets, erythroid and endothelial progenitors and the adult thymic medulla.HLA-G+ CD4 or CD8 cells have been identified in normal human peripheral blood and are thought to act as regulatory cells in that they are hypoproliferative with a unique cytokine profile differing from Tregs. The receptors for HLA-G are CD85j/ILT2, CD85d/ILT4, and CD158. Recent studies have shown a role for HLA-G in tolerance and maintenance of transplanted organs.Applications Reported: This 87G antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis, and immunohistology staining of frozen tissue sections.Applications Tested: This 87G antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.5 μg per test. A test is defined as the amount (μg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 μL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE.Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC.Filtration: 0.2μm post-manufacturing filtered.
