Hamster Monoclonal Antibody
Brand: BD Biosciences 553658
Additional Details : Weight : 0.01000kg
The MR1 antibody reacts with CD154 (CD40 Ligand, gp39), an accessory molecule expressed on activated T helper (CD4+) lymphocytes. CD154 has also been detected on other types of leukocytes, including CD8+ T cells, medullary thymocytes, activated CD4+ NK-T cells, and human NK cells. CD154 plays an important role in costimulatory interactions between T and B lymphocytes and between antigen-presenting cells and lymphocytes, regulating the immune response at multiple levels. MR1 mAb inhibits in vitro activation of B lymphocytes by T helper cells by blocking interaction of gp39 with CD40. In vitro interactions of T cells and antigen-presenting cells can also be blocked by the MR1 antibody. In vivo treatment with MR1 antibody blocks the development of experimental autoimmune disease, inhibits formation of germinal centers and generation of memory B cells, reduces T-lymphocyte responses to allogeneic cells and allografts, prevents intrathymic deletion of self-reactive T lymphocytes, and disrupts antigen-specific T-cell responses.
