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.

Applications of MHC Class II Monomorphic antibody
|Immunohistology - Frozen 1
|Immunohistology - Paraffin
- 1The epitope recognised by this antibody is reported to be sensitive to formaldehyde fixation and tissue processing. Bio-Rad recommends the use of acetone fixation for frozen sections.
Where this antibody has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. Suggested working dilutions are given as a guide only. It is recommended that the user titrates the antibody for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.
- Flow Cytometry
- Use 50ul of the suggested working dilution to label 106 cells in 100ul
