MICA + MICB
This antibody is specific for nonclassical MHC class I chain A (MICA) and nonclassical MHC class I chain MICB (MICB).
MICA and MICB are stress inducible antigens, which are closely related and appear functionally indistinguishable. MICA and MICB are ligands for NKG2D, an activating receptor on most natural killer (NK) cells, CD8 T cells and gamma delta T cells.
MICA is principally expressed on intestinal epithelium, and several epithelial tumours. Expression may be induced to high surface levels by heat shock, oxidative stress, and virus infection.
Store at +4 °C or at -20 °C if preferred.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
This product should be stored undiluted. This product is photosensitive and should be protected from light.
Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
If stored in this manner, this product is stable for 18 months after receipt.
