Regulatory Status Legend
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.

Preparation and Storage
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
Store undiluted at 4°C.
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
