HLA-A3 Monoclonal Antibody (GAP.A3), NovaFluor™ Blue 510
The monoclonal antibody GAP.A3 reacts with the human major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecule HLA-A3, which is a member of the HLA-A family. HLA-A3 exists as two subtypes, HLA-A3.1 and HLA-A3.2, which differ at amino acid positions 152 and 156. MHC class I molecules are expressed on all nucleated cells. These molecules are highly polymorphic, cell surface glycoproteins that non-covalently associate with B2 microglobulin. MHC Class I molecules present intracellular peptides on the cell surface and nonnative peptides are recognized by circulating cytotoxic T lymphocytes. HLA-A3 is expressed by 15-25% of cancer patients and has been demonstrated to bind the tumor-associated antigen human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT).
Applications Reported: This GAP.A3 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis.
Applications Tested: This GAP.A3 antibody has been pre-titrated and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This can be used at 5 µL (0.6 µg) per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test.
NovaFluor dyes are not compatible with DNA intercalating viability dyes. Do not use viability dyes such as propidium iodide, 7-actinomycin D (7-AAD) and DAPI. Invitrogen LIVE/DEAD Fixable Dead Cell stains are recommended for use with NovaFluor dyes.
Each NovaFluor conjugate or kit is shipped with CellBlox Blocking Buffer. Use this buffer whenever staining with NovaFluor conjugates, including single color compensation controls using cells. Use 5 µL of CellBlox Blocking Buffer per stained cell sample containing 10^3 to 10^8 cells.
NovaFluor conjugates are based on Phiton™ technology utilizing novel nucleic acid dye structures that allow for engineered fluorescent signatures with consideration for spillover and spread impacts. Learn more
