Regulatory Status Legend
The CerCLIP monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes the class II associated invariant chain peptides (CLIP). CLIP is the remaining segment of class II invariant chain (Ii) after proteolytic degradation which stays associated with HLA-DR and represents a final intermediate in the removal of invariant chain from class II molecules during antigen processing. The removal of CLIP and subsequent loading of the antigenic peptide is facilitated by the non-classical class II molecule HLA-DM. CLIP can be detected, in association with HLA-DR, on the surface of T2DR3, a mutant cell line lacking HLA-DM.

Preparation and Storage
Store undiluted at 4°C.
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
- An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
- Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
- Sodium azide is a reversible inhibitor of oxidative metabolism; therefore, antibody preparations containing this preservative agent must not be used in cell cultures nor injected into animals. Sodium azide may be removed by washing stained cells or plate-bound antibody or dialyzing soluble antibody in sodium azide-free buffer. Since endotoxin may also affect the results of functional studies, we recommend the NA/LE (No Azide/Low Endotoxin) antibody format, if available, for in vitro and in vivo use.
