The human placenta expresses HLA-G, a nonclassical (class Ib) MHC molecule that could play a central role in maternal tolerance of the semiallogeneic fetus. In this work, we report the production of a new mAb, 4H84, that specifically reacts with HLA-G in two formats: immunocytochemistry and immunoblotting. Immunolocalization experiments with 4H84 confirmed our previous finding that cytotrophoblasts within the uterine wall are the only cells in tissue sections of placenta that express the HLA-G… CONTINUE READING
