Preparation And Storage

The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. Store undiluted at 4°C.

Recommended Assay Procedures

Applications include flow cytometry (1-2 µg/1x10^6 cells). Additional applications not tested at BD Biosciences Pharmingen include immunoprecipitation (1-2 µg/1x10^6 cells),  immunohistochemical staining of frozen tissue sections (5-20 µg/ml), and immunofluorescence microscopy of cultured cells.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.

KS1/4

KS1/4 antigen (Ag), defined by the KS1/4 antibody (KS1/4), is expressed in many epithelial-derived carcinomas and normal epithelial cell surfaces. The cDNA encoding KS1/4 has been isolated and contains an open reading frame of 314 amino acids including a putative signal sequence. KS1/4 Ag migrates as three glycosylated polypeptides with molecular masses of 35, 40 and 42 kDa.  The 40 and 42 kDa species are similar proteins and appear to differ only by their degree of N-linked glycosylation. The 35 kDa species results from proteolytic cleavages of the larger molecular weight proteins. KS1/4 was first described as a monoclonal antibody which recognized a lung adenocarcinoma associated antigen.  In oncolytic drug targeting studies, KS1/4 suppressed the growth of human lung tumor xenografts in athymic nude mice. Subsequent studies showed that KS1/4 reacts with a variety of tumor tissues including colon, breast, ovarian, and pancreas. It also recognizes normal epithelium including colon, stomach, small intestine, liver, kidney, lung, pancreas, skin and ovary. These results suggest that KS1/4 Ag represents an epithelial cell/epithelial-derived carcinoma marker. KS1/4 recognizes a 40 - 42 kDa antigen expressed on the cell surfaces of a variety of epithelial tumors and normal epithelial cell types. KS1/4 also recognizes a 35 kDa proteolytic fragment. UCLA-P3 cells derived from a human adenocarcinoma of the lung were used as immunogen.

Purified
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
