MHC Class I antibody | F21-2
Chicken MHC Class molecules (B-F and B-L molecules) are highly conserved, with tissue distribution, structure and functions being similar to their mammalian counterparts.Avian MHC Class I molecules, known also as B-F antigens, consist of a glycosylated polymorphic transmembrane α-chain non-covalently bound to the invariant β2-microglobulin subunit.
Mouse anti Chicken MHC Class I, clone F21-2 recognizes Turkey MHC Class I (Meyerhoff et al. 2012).
