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

The 49-H4 antibody specifically binds to the ThB antigen (Ly-6D), a 15-kDa GPI-anchored protein of the Ly-6 Multigene Family. ThB has been detected on cortical thymocytes, small sIg- Thy-1- and sIg+ lymphoid cells in the bone marrow, thymic medullary epithelial cells, all epidermal layers (except the stratum corneum), and on peripheral B lymphocytes (but not peripheral T lymphocytes).  There is strain-to-strain variation in ThB antigen expression on splenic B cells. Strains with the Ly-6.2 haplotype (e.g., AKR, C57BL, DBA/2, SJL, SWR) stain more intensely with anti-ThB reagents than Ly-6.1 strains (e.g., A, BALB/c, CBA, C3H/He, NZB); B cells of Ly-6.1 and Ly-6.2 hybrids stain with intermediate intensity.  The proportion of ThB+ B cells to thymocytes do not differ significantly among strains.

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.
