Mouse anti Rat CD161 antibody, clone 10/78 recognizes the rat Killer cell lectin-like receptor subfamily B protein, also known as NKR-PI or CD161. CD161 is a 233 amino acid ~60 kDa type II single pass protein containing a single C-type lectin domain. CD161 is expressed on rat NK cells and T cell subpopulations. CD161 exists in 2 forms NKR-PIa and NKR-PIb, Mouse anti Rat CD161 antibody, clone 10/78  recognizes both forms of CD161 (Li et al. 2003). Clone 10/78 competes with another anti CD161 clone, 3.2.3 for binding to antigen.

Mouse anti Rat CD161 antibody, clone 10/78 has been successfully employed for the in vivo depletion of rat NK cells in an experimental obesity model (Wrann et al. 2010).
