Description

Background

MHC class I polypeptide-related sequence A is a protein that in humans is encoded by the MICA gene.1 The MICA gene encodes a 383-amino acid polypeptide with a predicted mass of 43 kD. The MICA and MICB genes occur in a 200-kb region spanning the TNFA and TNFB cluster at 6p21.3.2 MICA and the closely related MICB were recognized by intestinal epithelial T cells expressing diverse V-delta-1 gamma/delta TCRs.3 The MICA protein product is expressed on the cell surface, although unlike canonical class I molecules does not seem to associate with beta-2-microglobulin. It is further distinguished by its unusual exon-intron organization and preferential expression in fibroblasts and epithelial cells. It is thought that MICA functions as a stress-induced antigen that is broadly recognized by NK cells, NKT cells, and most of the subtypes of T cells. MICA and other members of this family may have been selected for specialized functions that are either ancient or derived from those of typical MHC class I genes, in analogy to some of the nonclassic mouse H-2 genes.

Application Note

Useful in Sandwich ELISA for Quantitative Detection of Antigen. Aliquot 0.1ml per well of the 4000pg/ml, 2000pg/ml, 1000pg/ml, 500pg/ml, 250pg/ml, 125pg/ml, 62.5pg/ml human MICA standard solutions into the precoated 96-well plate. Add 0.1ml of the sample diluent buffer into the control well (Zero well). Add 0.1ml of each properly diluted sample of human cell culture supernates, cell lysates, tissue lysates or serum to each empty well. It is recommended that each human MICA standard solution and each sample be measured in duplicate.

Purity/Specificity

Natural and recombinant human MICA. There is no detectable cross-reactivity with other relevant proteins.
