Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  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.
  4. Sodium azide is a reversible inhibitor of oxidative metabolism; therefore, antibody preparations containing this preservative agent must not be used in cell cultures nor injected into animals. Sodium azide may be removed by washing stained cells or plate-bound antibody or dialyzing soluble antibody in sodium azide-free buffer. Since endotoxin may also affect the results of functional studies, we recommend the NA/LE (No Azide/Low Endotoxin) antibody format, if available, for in vitro and in vivo use.
  5. Please refer to for technical protocols.

The OX-61 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes a type II transmembrane glycoprotein, CD26, which is a serine exoprotease identified as dipeptidyl/peptidase IV. Among various biological activities, rat CD26 binds fibronectin and collagen. Rat CD26 is involved in the costimulation of thymocyte proliferation in vitro, particularly the CD4-/CD8- subset, and is developmentally regulated on hematopoietic cells. Although mouse and human CD26 anchor ADA (adenosine deaminase) to cell membranes, rat CD26 does not function as an ADA-binding protein. Rat CD26 is expressed in lung endothelial cells, as well as in various epithelial cells. T cells express lower levels of CD26 than CD4-/CD8- thymocytes. The distribution of CD26 antigen in rat bone marrow cells is similar to that of human CD26. OX-61 monoclonal antibody stains CD4+, CD8+, and Ig+ lymphocytes, and the staining increases upon activation.

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.
