Product Description Rat Monoclonal antibody [RB6-8C5] recognizes Ly6G + Ly6C
Tested Reactivity Ms
Tested Application Depletion, FACS, IHC-Fr, IHC-P, IP
Specificity This antibody recognizes the mouse Gr-1 antigen, a ~21 - 25 kDa GPI anchored cell surface protein bearing a single uPAR/Ly6 domain that belongs to the Ly-6 family of proteins (Lee et al. 2013). Clone RB6-8C5 reacts predominantly with the Ly-6G protein but weaker reactivity with the Ly-6C protein has been reported (Fleming et al. 1993). However, other observations dispute the cross-reactivity of clone RB6-8C5 with the Ly-6C protein with the alternative explanation that certain sub-populations of bone marrow cells simultaneously express both Ly-6C and Ly-6G (Nagendra et al. 2007).

Gene Full Name lymphocyte antigen 6 complex, locus G
Background Ly6G is a component of the myeloid differentiation antigen Gr-1, together with Ly6C. Ly6G is a good marker for detection of peripheral neutrophils. Expression of Gr-1 in bone marrow correlates with granulocyte differentiation and maturation. Physiological role of Ly6G remains still unclear. Its treatment with antibodies in vivo leads to neutropenia and has inhibitory effect on local immune responses. _x000D_
