Regulatory Status Legend
The OX-6 antibody specifically recognizes non-polymorphic determinants of the Rat MHC class II antigen, I-A equivalent. RT1B is found on peripheral B lymphocytes, thymic cortical epithelial and medullary reticular cells, small intestinal villus epithelium, epidermal Langerhans cells, dendritic cells, some tissue macrophage populations, peritoneal mast cells, and a subset of thymocytes, but not on peripheral T cells, erythrocytes, or microglia. The OX-6 mAb cross-reacts with mouse I-A[k] and I-A[s] alloantigens and with a major subset of splenocytes from NOD (I-A[g7]) mice.
FITC, fluorescein isothiocyanate, is a fluorochrome with a molecular weight of 389 Da. FITC is sensitive to pH changes and photobleaching. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, FITC and Alexa Fluor® 488 cannot be used simultaneously. FITC is relatively dim and should be reserved for highly expressed markers whenever possible.

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