Mouse anti ChickenBu-1a/b antibody, clone AV20
recognizes Chicken Bu-1a/b, also known as chB6, a type 1 transmembrane protein.
Bu-1 is a product of two alleles, Bu-1a ad Bu-1b, clone AV20 recognises both alleles. The Bu-1 antigen is expressed by chicken B-cells throughout most of their development and by a subset of monocytes and macrophages. The antigen is absent from erythrocytes, granulocytes and thrombocytes. In addition to clone AV20, clone L22
that recognises Bu-1a but not Bu-1b is available.
