Dear Flowers et al.,

is anybody out there aware of antibodies against Y chromosome encoded genes?
Some Y-encoded genes represent minor histocompatibility antigens and there
are definitely antibodies in human sex-mismatched transplantation. Also, as
far as I understood some Y genes are differentially expressed in various
tissues (as measured by PCR and arrays). However, I couldn't find specific
antibodies against those genes (which would be useful for FACS or IF).
Anybody else did? 

Thanks in advance for your answers
