C3H mouse splenocytes
Flow cytometry (Routinely Tested)
0.5 mg/ml
Aqueous buffered solution containing ≤0.09% sodium azide.

Preparation And Storage

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

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to 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.

The 10-3.6 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes the β chain of the I-A[k] MHC class II alloantigen. It cross-reacts with splenocytes from mice of the H-2[f], H-2[r], and H-2[s] haplotypes, from nonobese diabetic (NOD, H-2[g7]) mice, and with lymph node cells of BN, DA, WRA, and WRC rats. Reactivity with other haplotypes (e.g., b, d, p, q) has not been observed. Long-term in vivo treatment with 10-3.6 mAb has been reported to prevent the spontaneous development of autoimmune insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) in female NOD mice.

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.
