Clone PK136 recognizes mouse NK1.1, a cell surface antigen expressed by natural killer cells and a subset of T cells in the NK1.1 mouse strains including CE, C57BL/6, FVB/N, and NZB. NK1.1 is not expressed by NK cells from the following mouse strains: 129, A, AKR, BALB/c, C3H, CBA, and SJL.
This antibody was derived in 1984 by injection of splenocytes (enriched for NK-1-positive cells) and bone marrow cells from CE mice into (C3H x BALB/c) F1 mice. Splenocytes from these mice were then fused with Sp2/0-Ag14 cells to generate hybridomas.
