Purified Rat Anti-Mouse MAdCAM-1

Immunohistochemical staining of mouse MadCAM-1: Frozen sections of normal mouse small intestine were reacted with the anti-MadCAM-1 antibody. Cells of the lamina propria and the mucosal lymphoid tissue expressing MadCAM-1 can be identified by the brown labeling of their cell membranes. Amplification 20X.

Preparation And Storage

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

Recommended Assay Procedures

Immunohistochemistry: The MECA-367 antibody specific for mouse MadCAM-1 is recommended to test for immunohistochemical staining of acetone-fixed frozen sections. Tissues tested were mouse spleen, thymus and small intestine. The antibody stains mucosal lymphoid tissue and lamina propria. In the spleen it is expressed in the sinus lining cells. The isotype control recommended for use with this antibody is purified rat IgG2a (Cat. No. 559073). For optimal indirect immunohistochemical staining, the MECA-367 antibody should be titrated (1:10 to 1:50 dilution) and visualized via a three-step staining procedure in combination with polyclonal, biotin conjugated anti-rat Igs (multiple adsorbed) (Cat. No. 559286) as the secondary antibody and Streptravidin-HRP (Cat. No. 550946) together with the DAB detection system (Cat. No. 550880). A detailed protocol of the immunohistochemical procedure is available on our website: www.bdbiosciences.com/support/resources.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. 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.
  3. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  4. This antibody has been developed for the immunohistochemistry application. However, a routine immunohistochemistry test is not performed on every lot. Researchers are encouraged to titrate the reagent for optimal performance.
  5. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  6. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.

MECA-367

The MECA-367 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes mucosal vascular addressin MAdCAM-1. In the fetus and neonate, MAdCAM-1 is the predominant vascular addressin on the high endothelial venules (HEV) of peripheral lymph nodes. In adult mice, MAdCAM-1 is preferentially expressed in mucosal lymphoid tissues and lamina propria; it is also expressed on sinus-lining cells in the spleen. MAdCAM-1 expression is upregulated on the HEV of peripheral lymph nodes in adult NOD mice4 and is involved in the development of diabetes and insulitis. Furthermore, there is evidence that IFN-γ can induce MAdCAM-1 expression in non-mucosal sites in adult mice. MAdCAM-1 is a predominant ligand for integrin α4β7, a lymphocyte mucosal homing receptor, and a facultative ligand for CD62L (L-selectin). MECA-367 mAb binds to the first domain of MAdCAM-1 and blocks MAdCAM-1-dependent binding in vitro and lymphocyte homing to Peyer's patch HEV in vivo. Source of the immunogen was endothelial cells from BALB/c mouse mesenteric and peripheral lymph nodes.

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.
