Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  3. 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.

CH-L

The CH-L monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD158b proteins. These proteins are 50-58 kDa type I glycoproteins that belong to the Killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptor (KIR) family: (KIR2DL2/L3/S2). They are also known as CD158b1 (KIR2DL2; NKAT-6; p58.2), CD158b2 (KIR2DL3; NKAT-2; p58.2), or CD158j (KIR2DS2; NKAT-5; p50.2). The CD158b molecules are composed of two extracellular Ig-like domains, and a transmembrane region. CD158b1 and CD158b2 also possess long (84 or 76 amino acids, respectively) cytoplasmic tails with two immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibition motifs (ITIM) whereas CD158j has a short (39 amino acid) cytoplasmic tail that lacks the ITIM motif.  CD158b molecules are expressed on NK cells and subsets of TCR αβ+ cells or TCR γδ+ cells. Ligand- or CH-L antibody-bound CD158b1 or CD158b2 can reportedly inhibit cytolytic NK and T cell responses to various stimuli including certain target cells expressing MHC class I ligands encoded by HLA-C alleles (Cw 1, 3, 7 and 8).  CD158j reportedly can enhance some cellular cytolytic responses.

This antibody is routinely tested by flow cytometric analysis. Other applications were tested at BD Biosciences Pharmingen during antibody development only or reported in the literature.

Purified
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
