Blockade of Receptor-ligand Interaction
In a functional ELISA, 0.2-0.6 µg/mL of this antibody will block 50% of the binding of 125 ng/mL of Recombinant Biotinylated Mouse NKG2D Fc Chimera to immobilized Recombinant Mouse Rae-1 gamma Fc Chimera (Catalog # 1136‑RA) coated at 1 µg/mL (100 µL/well). At 4 μg/mL, this antibody will block >90% of the binding.
 

Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.

Data Example

Immunohistochemistry Rae‑1  in Mouse Embryo. View Larger

Rae‑1 in Mouse Embryo. Rae‑1 was detected in immersion fixed frozen sections of mouse embryo (13 d.p.c.) using Goat Anti-Mouse Rae‑1 Pan Specific Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1136) at 5 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to axons of primary sensory neurons. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Frozen Tissue Sections.

Background: Rae-1

Rae-1 gamma is a member of a family of cell-surface proteins that function as ligands for mouse NKG2D. Other family members are designated Rae-1 alpha, beta, δ and epsilon. Amino acid sequence identity within this family ranges from 88‑95%. The Rae-1 proteins are distantly related to MHC class I proteins, but they possess only the alpha 1 and alpha 2 Ig-like domains, and they have no capacity to bind peptide or interact with beta 2-microglobulin. The genes encoding these proteins are not found within the Major Histocompatibility Complex on mouse chromosome 17, but rather map to mouse chromosome 10. The Rae-1 proteins are anchored to the membrane via a GPI‑linkage. The name of this family derives from the original identification of these proteins as the product of retinoic acid early inducible transcripts. Rae-1 expression is developmentally controlled. Transcripts were observed in the brain/head region of day 10‑14 embryos but disappeared by day 18. Rae-1 transcripts were detected in several transformed cell lines but are absent from most normal adult tissues. All Rae-1 family members bind to mouse NKG2D, an activating receptor expressed on NK cells and some T cell subsets, resulting in the activation of cytolytic activity and/or cytokine production by these effector cells. Ectopic expression of Rae-1 on mouse tumor cell lines resulted in the in vivo rejection of the tumors (1‑6).
