More Information
Clone 2C4
Isotype Mouse (BALB/c) IgG2aκ
Isotype Control Mouse IgG2a-BIOT (HOPC-1)
Specificity Rabbit RLA-DQ
Alternative Names MHC Class II, leukocyte antigen
Description The monoclonal antibody 2C4 reacts with RLA-DQ-transfected cells, but not with RLA-DR-transfected cells. In normal adult rabbits, the antibody reacts with 30-60% of peripheral blood leukocytes. It has also been reported that the antibody stains lymphocytes and macrophages in the spleen, lymphocytes in the thymic medulla and some cells in the cortex, Kupffer cells in the liver, and synovial lining cells (e.g., infiltrating macrophages) in inflamed synovium. DQα transcripts have been detected in bone marrow and spleen and to a lesser extent in appendix, lymph nodes, and other organs.
