More Information
Clone F21-2
Isotype Mouse IgG1κ
Isotype Control Mouse IgG1-UNLB (15H6)
Specificity Chicken/Turkey MHC Class I
Alternative Names B-F
Description Like their mammalian counterparts, avian MHC Class I molecules, also known as B-F antigens, consist of a highly polymorphic α-chain noncovalently bound to the invariant β2-microglobulin subunit. MHC Class I molecules are expressed on most nucleated cells where they present endogenously synthesized antigenic peptides to CD8+ T lymphocytes, which are usually cytotoxic T cells. The monoclonal antibody F21-2 also reacts with turkey MHC Class I.
