Mouse anti MHC Class II H-2I-Ab/s antibody, clone OX-3 recognizes a polymorphic determinant of the rat RT1B MHC class II antigen, reacting with haplotypes u and l. The literature reports reactivity with Lewis, Wistar and AO strain rats but not BN, DA or PVG/c strains. Mouse anti MHC Class II H-2I-Ab/s antibody, clone OX-3 is useful for distinguishing RT1B positive cells from different rat strains, e.g. for recognising cells of donor origin in bone marrow reconstituted radiation chimaeras.

Mouse anti MHC Class II H-2I-Ab/s antibody, clone OX-3 also cross reacts with mouse strains of the H-2 haplotypes b and s. Analysis of recombinant mouse strains has mapped the OX-3 determinant to the H-2I-A region.

The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) is a cluster of genes that are important in the immune response to infections. In mice, this complex is referred to as the H-2 region. In rats, this complex is referred to as the RT1 region.

This product is routinely tested in flow cytometry on Lewis rat splenocytes.
