Regulatory Status Legend
The TER-119 antibody specifically binds to a 52 kDa molecule associated with glycophorin A on cells of the erythroid lineage in embryonic yolk sac, fetal liver, newborn liver, adult bone marrow, adult peripheral blood, and adult lymphoid organs. The TER-119 antigen is expressed on erythroid cells from pro-erythroblast through mature erythrocyte stages, but not on cells with BFU-E or CFU-E activities. The TER-119 epitope is not detected on hematopoietic stem cells, lymphoid cells, myeloid cells, or erythroleukemia lines. The TER-119 mAb is a component of the "lineage cocktail" used in studies of hematopoietic progenitors to detect, or deplete cells committed to the hematopoietic lineages.

Preparation and Storage
Store undiluted at 4°C.
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
- 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.
- Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
- This antibody has been developed for the immunohistochemistry application. However, a routine immunohistochemistry test is not performed on every lot. Researchers are encouraged to titrate the reagent for optimal performance.
- An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.

Immunohistochemistry: The TER-119 antibody specific for mouse erythroid cells is recommended to test for immunohistochemical staining of formalin-fixed paraffin and acetone-fixed frozen sections. Tissues tested were mouse spleen, thymus and kidney. The antibody stains cells of the erythroid origin. The isotype control recommended for use with this antibody is purified rat IgG2b (Cat. No. 559478). For optimal indirect immunohistochemical staining, the TER-119 antibody should be titrated (1:10 to 1:50 dilution) and visualized via a three-step staining procedure in combination with, biotin conjugated anti-rat IgG2b (Cat. No. 550327) as the secondary antibody and Streptavidin-HRP (Cat. No. 550946) together with the DAB detection system (Cat. No. 550880).
