Biotin Mouse Anti-Mouse I-A[d]
Biotin Mouse Anti-Mouse I-A[d]

Immunohistochemistry of I-A[d] positive cells. Frozen sections of mouse thymus were reacted with the anti-I-A[d] antibody. Cells expressing the MHC class II molecule I-A[d] can be identified by the intense brown labeling of their cell membranes. Magnification 20x.

Preparation And Storage

Store undiluted at 4°C. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated with biotin under optimum conditions, and unreacted biotin was removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

Immunohistochemistry: The AMS-32.1 clone reactive against mouse I-A[d] is recommended to test for immunohistochemical staining of acetone-fixed frozen sections. Tissues tested were mouse (BALB/c) spleen and thymus. The antibody stains the I-A[d] molecules found on the surface of cells expressing MHC-II in strains of mice expressing this haplotype. For optimal immunohistochemical staining, the biotinylated antibody should be titrated (1:10 to 1:50 dilution) and developed with Streptavidin-HRP (Cat. No. 550946) together with the DAB detection system (Cat. No. 550880). The clone AMS-32.1 is not recommended for formalin-fixed paraffin embedded sections.

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. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  5. 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.

AMS-32.1

The AMS-32.1 antibody specifically reacts with the I-A[d] MHC class II alloantigen. It crossreacts with cells from mice of the H-2[f], H-2[g7], H-2[i], and H-2[v] haplotypes. Reactivity with other haplotypes (e.g., k, p, q, r, s, u) has not been observed.

Biotin
Biotin is a ubiquitous co-factor (also known as Vitamin B7) that has many properties that make it extremely useful for molecular biology. Biotin has an extremely high affinity for the Avidin family of proteins (Kd = 10-15 M), making it the perfect tool to link two molecules. Biotin labeled antibodies can be combined with any number of Avidin-conjugated probes in order to customize an assay to a particular need. This is especially useful in the case of magnetic cell separation using streptavidin/magnetic bead conjugates, or in the case of flow cytometry using streptavidin/fluorophore conjugates.
