Specificity & Comments
This MAb reacts with the HLA-DRB3 antigen, a member of MHC class II molecules.It does not cross react with HLA-DP and HLA-DQ. HLA-DR is a heterodimeric cell surface glycoprotein comprised of a 36kDa alpha (heavy) chain and a 28kDa beta (light) chain. It is expressed on B-cells, activated T-cells, monocytes/macrophages, dendritic cells and other non-professional APCs. In conjunction with the CD3/TCR complex and CD4 molecules, HLA-DR is critical for efficient peptide presentation to CD4+ T cells. HLA-DR antigens also occur on a variety of epithelial cells and their corresponding neoplastic counterparts.
