Mouse anti Cat MHC Class II antibody, clone vpg3 recognizes a monomorphic determinant on feline MHC class II molecules. MonomorphicThe major histocompatibility complex (MHC) is a cluster of genes that are important in the immune response to infections. In cats, this is referred to as the feline leukocyte antigen (FLA) region.

Mouse anti Cat MHC Class II antibody, clone vpg3 recogniszes monomorphic feline MHC class II molecules which are expressed by antigen presenting cells, B cells, monocytes and both activated and resting T lymphocytes.
