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.
