Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  3. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  4. 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.

Antibody Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow

Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) elicits a variety of cellular responses that are initiated by EGF receptor (EGF-R) binding and activation of intrinsic tyrosine kinase activity. Following ligand binding, EGF receptor is autophosphorylated and, in turn, phosphorylates several other endogenous proteins including phospholipase Cγ. These events initiate a number of intracellular responses that include increased levels of intracellular Ca2+ and transient expression of the nuclear oncogene products c-Myc and c-Fos.

This antibody is routinely tested by immunofluorescence.  Other applications were tested at BD Biosciences Pharmingen during antibody development only or reported in the literature.

Fluorescein (FITC) is part of the BD blue family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 494-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 518-nm. FITC is designed to be excited by the Blue laser (488-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 520 nm (e.g., a 530/30-nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
