The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated with FITC under optimum conditions, and unreacted FITC was removed. Store undiluted at -20°C.

Product Notices

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

23/Clathrin Heavy Chain

Clathrin is the major protein component in the coat formed around pits and vesicles involved in receptor-mediated endocytosis. Clathrin forms a non-covalently bound triskelion structure composed of three heavy chains (192 kDa each) and three light chains (23-25 kDa each). Each leg of the triskelion structure contains one heavy and one light chain. The three heavy chains forming the triskelion structure are attached at their respective proximal ends like spokes on a wheel. Clathrin heavy chain is composed of a terminal globular domain, a distal segment containing several areas sensitive to enzymatic cleavage, and a proximal segment which contains a light chain binding site. The proximal and distal domains are connected by a joint segment at which there is a sharp bend in the heavy chains of fully-assembled triskelia. Although the calculated molecular weight is 192 kDa, clathrin heavy chain migrates at approximately 180 kDa.

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.
