Background Information

Ly-6G (lymphocyte antigen 6 complex, locus G), also known as Gr-1, is a 21-25 kDa, glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored protein expressed on myeloid lineage cells in mouse bone marrow (PMID: 8360469). The expression of Ly-6G increases on neutrophils as they differentiate from immature cells in the bone marrow to mature cells in the blood and spleen (PMID: 8890901). Antibodies targeting Ly6G (RB6-8C5 or 1A8) are commonly used in studies aimed at identifying the role of neutrophils (PMID: 23543767). The RB6-8C5 mAb has been reported to cross-react with Ly-6C on cells expressing Ly-6C (PMID: 8360469).
