Preparation And Storage

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

Antibody Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow

Reacts with the core peptide of the MUC2 protein, a member of a family of mucin glycoproteins that are characterized by high carbohydrate content, O-linked oligosaccharides, high molecular weight (>200 kD) and an amino acid composition rich in serine, threonin, proline and glycine. The core protein contains a domain of 23 amino-acid tandem repeats which function as multiple epitopes for the monoclonal antibody. Incomplete glycosylation of some tumor-associated mucins may lead to variable unmasking of the multiple peptide epitopes leading to the observed differences in staining intensity between normal and malignant tissues. This antibody has been shown to be relatively tissue specific, being associated predominantly with intestinal tissue and is highly reactive with colon and gastric tumors. The antibody is suitable for staining formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue sections following citrate pretreatment.

Format Details
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.
