Preparation And Storage

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

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.

L178

The L178 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD44 which is also known as Homing-associated cell adhesion molecule (H-CAM) or Phagocytic glycoprotein 1 (Pgp-1). CD44 is a single-pass type I transmembrane glycoprotein that exists in a variety of isoforms also known as variant CD44 (CD44v) or CD44R forms. CD44 is synthesized as a 37 kDa polypeptide that is converted to an 80-95 kDa form by glycosylation via N- and O-linkages, or to a 180-200 kDa form by the addition of chondroitin sulfate. It is expressed on leucocytes, erythrocytes, epithelial cells and weakly on platelets. Depending on the cell type, CD44 may participate in a variety of functions including cell adhesion, motility and cell activation.

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.
