Rat anti Mouse NKG2A/C/E antibody, clone 20d5
recognizes murine NKG2A, NKG2C and NKG2E, which are isoforms of the NKG2 lectin-like family. In mice, NKG2 subunits associate with CD94 to form heterodimers at the surface of natural killer (NK) cells.
The CD94/NKG2 heterodimer is the receptor for a non-classical MHC class I ligand, which is Qa-1 in the mouse (Colmenero et al. 2007
Rat anti Mouse NKG2A/C/E, clone 20d5 is reported to block ligand binding to the receptor (Vance et al. 1999
