Detection of NKG2A/CD159a in Human Blood Lymphocytes by Flow Cytometry. Human peripheral blood lymphocytes were stained with Mouse Anti-Human NKG2A/CD159a APC‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB1059A) and Mouse Anti-Human NCAM‑1/CD56 PE‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB2408P). Quadrant markers were set based on isotype control antibody staining (Catalog # IC003A). View our protocol for Staining Membrane-associated Proteins.

NKG2A is a type II transmembrane receptor having a single extracellular lectin-like domain and a cytoplasmic ITIM motif. It associates with CD94 and is expressed on NK cells and some activated T cell populations. The NKG2A/CD94 complex delivers an inhibitory signal upon recognition of its ligand, HLA-E.
