Preparation And Storage

The antibody was conjugated with biotin under optimum conditions, and unreacted biotin was removed. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.

Recommended Assay Procedures

For immunohistochemical staining of cells expressing MHC class I antigen of the b haplotype, we recommend the use of biotinylated anti-mouse H-2K[b] mAb AF6-88.5 in our special formulation for immunohistochemistry, Cat. no. 550550.  

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.

28-8-6

The 28-8-6 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes the H-2K[b] and H-2D[b] MHC class I alloantigens. The reaction with H-2K[b] has been reported to be stronger than that with H-2D[b].  Its recognition of H-2D[b] is dependent upon the presence of β2 microglobulin.  Cross-reactivity with an epitope on the N-terminal domains, α1 and α2, of the H-2D[d] MHC class I alloantigen has also been described.  Reactivity with other haplotypes (e.g., f, k, p, q, r, s) has not been observed.

Biotin
Biotin is a ubiquitous co-factor (also known as Vitamin B7) that has many properties that make it extremely useful for molecular biology. Biotin has an extremely high affinity for the Avidin family of proteins (Kd = 10-15 M), making it the perfect tool to link two molecules. Biotin labeled antibodies can be combined with any number of Avidin-conjugated probes in order to customize an assay to a particular need. This is especially useful in the case of magnetic cell separation using streptavidin/magnetic bead conjugates, or in the case of flow cytometry using streptavidin/fluorophore conjugates.
