Mouse anti Chicken MHC Class 1 antibody, clone F21-2 recognizes Chicken MHC Class I expressed on the majority of nucleated cells.

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).

Storage Information

This product is shipped at ambient temperature. It is recommended to aliquot and store at -20°C on receipt. When thawed, aliquot the sample as needed. Keep aliquots at 2-8°C for short term use (up to 4 weeks) and store the remaining aliquots at -20°C.

Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
