There are two antibodies that I know of which recognize human CLIP:
CerCLIP (Peter Cresswell, Yale) detects CLIP free or bound to MHC Class II,
but not whole Ii.
30-2 (Alexander Rudensky, UWash - Seattle) detects CLIP only in the context
of the murine A(b) molecule. There is some cross-reactivity with murine
CLIP, and it can also detect some of the larger Ii fragments (SLIP, LIP)
bound to A(b).
As far as I know, there is no monoclonal specifically against mouse CLIP,
although the epitope for P4H5 overlaps with CLIP (P4H5 can detect whole Ii,
but not CLIP-deleted fragments). I believe P4H5 is available from ATCC.
Hope that helps,
