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 to access safety data sheets (SDS).
  6. Please refer to for technical protocols.

The RP-1 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes the RP-1 Antigen. This cell surface marker is expressed on rat peritoneal and peripheral blood neutrophils. Amongst bone marrow cells, the RP-1 Antigen is expressed on band form and mature neutrophils but is not expressed on promyelocytes, myelocytes, and metamyelocytes. The RP-1 antibody does not bind to either rat monocytes, macrophages, eosinophils or to peritoneal neutrophils from mice, rabbits, guinea pigs, or to human peripheral blood neutrophils. Expression of the RP-1 Antigen on rat peritoneal neutrophils is enhanced by cellular stimulation with Phorbol 12-Myristate 13-Acetate (PMA) or Concanavalin A (ConA). Immunoprecipitation and SDS-PAGE analysis of non-treated and PMA-activated rat neutrophil membranes with the RP-1 antibody revealed two main bands of approximately 85 kDa. The RP-1 antibody is also known as the Mouse Anti-Rat Granulocytes antibody.

Down Arrow Up Arrow
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.
