Purified Hamster Anti-Mouse H2-M3
Purified Hamster Anti-Mouse H2-M3

Upregulation of H2-M3 expression by exogenous N-formylated peptide.  C57BL/6 splenocytes were cultured overnight in the absence (left panel) or presence (right panel) of N-Formyl-Met-Leu-Phe-Phe peptide (Sigma-Aldrich). The cells were then stained with either purified hamster anti- mouse H2-M3 mAb (clone 130) (open histograms) or purified hamster IgG1, κ isotype control mAb (clone A19-3) (Cat. No. 553969, filled histograms), in the presence of Mouse BD Fc Block™ purified anti-mouse CD16/CD32, mAb (clone 2.4G2) (Cat. No. 553141, open and filled histograms), followed by PE mouse anti-hamster IgG cocktail (Cat. No. 554056, open and filled histograms). Flow cytometry was performed on a BD FACSCalibur™ instrument.

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. Although hamster immunoglobulin isotypes have not been well defined, BD Biosciences Pharmingen has grouped Armenian and Syrian hamster IgG monoclonal antibodies according to their reactivity with a panel of mouse anti-hamster IgG mAbs. A table of the hamster IgG groups, Reactivity of Mouse Anti-Hamster Ig mAbs, may be viewed at http://www.bdbiosciences.com/documents/hamster_chart_11x17.pdf.
  4. 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.

130

The hamster anti-mouse H2-M3 antibody (clone 130) reacts with the H2-M3 major histocompatibility complex (MHC) non-classical class Ib antigen. H2-M3 (M3) associates with β2-microglobulin and is capable of being expressed by most leukocytes. However, due to a lack of endogenous antigens, M3 has been reported to be undetectable on most cells. Its expression is induced by high-affinity N-formylated peptides from mitochondria, Listeria monocytogenes, and Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The induced expression of M3 is most efficient on antigen presenting cells. M3 presents antigen to cytotoxic T lymphocytes and may play a key role in protective immunity against the intracellular bacteria L. monocytogenes and M. tuberculosis. Furthermore, M3 is capable of presenting mitochondrial antigens for intrathymic positive selection of T-cell receptors which recognize those peptides.

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.
