Description: 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-diluted and tested by flow cytometric analysis of normal human peripheral blood cells. This may be used at 5 µL (1.0 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.
Super Bright 436 can be excited with the violet laser line (405 nm) and emits at 436 nm. We recommend using a 450/50 bandpass filter, or equivalent. Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome.
When using two or more Super Bright dye-conjugated antibodies in a staining panel, it is recommended to use Super Bright Complete Staining Buffer (Product # SB-4401) to minimize any non-specific polymer interactions. Please refer to the datasheet for Super Bright Staining Buffer for more information.
Excitation: 405 nm; Emission: 436 nm; Laser: Violet Laser
