Mouse anti Human dendritic cells antibody, clone RFD1
recognizes an epitope within the class II MHC complex. In normal tissue mouse anti human dendritic cells antibody, clone RFD1 identifies dendritic cells and a proportion of B lymphocytes. Within the macrophage/dendritic cell populations the epitope seen by RFD1 is co-expressed with RFD7 by a subset of cells that exhibit suppressive activity on T cell stimulation.Mouse anti Human dendritic cells antibody, clone RFD1 does not bind to monocytes or cells of the granulocyte lineage.
Mouse anti Human dendritic cells antibody, clone RFD1 has been used for the induction of apoptosis via MHC Class II cross linking of gastric mucosa epithelial cells (Fan et al. 1998

Applications of Dendritic Cells/B Cells 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. It is recommended that the user titrates the antibody for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.
