Specificity for H-2Db
This antibody is specific for an epitope in the α3 domain of the mouse H-2Db. The "classical" MHC Class I molecules are histocompatibility antigens encoded by the H-2 gene complex and consist of heterodimers of highly polymorphic α chains noncovalently associated with the invariant β2-microglobulin. These antigens are expressed on most nucleated cells but expression varies on different cell types. MHC Class I molecules present endogenously synthesized peptides to CD8+ T lymphocytes, which are usually cytotoxic T cells. MHC Class I antigens expressed on thymic epithelial cells regulate the positive and negative selection of CD8+ T cells during T cell ontogeny. The monoclonal antibody 28-14-8 binds to the α3 domain of H-2Db in the presence or absence of β2 microglobulin. It cross reacts with the α3 domain of H-2Ld, but not Kd or Dd, and with H-2Dq and/or Lq. The antibody has been shown to block H-2Ld-specific and H-2Ld-restricted antigen-specific lysis of target cells by cytotoxic T lymphocytes, but it does not block recognition of H-2Ld-positive target cells by Ly-6G2-positive NK cells.
