The antibody MR2-1 reacts with the extra-cellular part of the TNF-RII. It also reacts with the soluble receptor. TNF-RII is present on most cell types and is considered to play a prominent role in cell stimulation by TNF-alpha. TNF-RII molecule is shown to be responsible for stimulation of activated T-lymphocytes by TNF-alpha. The antibody cross reacts with rhesus and cynomolgus natural TNF-RII.
Flow cytometry, Frozen sections, Functional studies, Immuno assays, Immuno fluorescence, Immuno precipitation, Western blot
For immunohistology, flow cytometry and Western blotting dilutions to be used depend on detection system applied. It is recommended that users test the reagent and determine their own optimal dilutions. The typical starting working dilution is 1:10. Advised positive controls for frozen sections are human lymphnodes and for flow cytometry PHA activated T cells.
