Functional Studies: Anti-Lewis[x] monoclonal antibody (clone MMA) has been used to determine Le[x] expression on normal and neoplastic cells in studies of tumor metastasis, together with sialyl-Le[x] (CD15s), E-selectin (CD62E) and Pselectin (CD62P) monoclonal antibodies.

Immunohistology: Anti-Lewis[x] monoclonal antibody (clone MMA) can be used in staining formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue sections of normal prostate, colon, stomach, brain and lymphoid tissues, adenocarcinomas of lung and urinary bladder. The MMA monoclonal antibody also stains neuraminidase-treated, formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections of normal, metaplastic and neoplastic cervical epithelium.

Immunoblotting: Anti-Lewis[x] monoclonal antibody (clone MMA) can be used to detect Le[x] in membranous glycoprotein cell or tissue extracts by immunoblotting.

Cell ELISA: Anti-Lewis[x] monoclonal antibody (clone MMA) can be used to detect Le[x] on HL-60 promyelocytic, HT-29 colon cancer or F9 teratocarcinoma cells.

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.

Reacts with the Le[x] blood group antigen, lacto-N-fucopentaose III or the CD15 antigen. The Le[x] determinant is expressed on normal cells and tissues of diverse origin, including myelomonocytic cells, myoepithelial cells in prostate, glandular epithelial cells including breast, renal cell and hepatocellular carcinomas, lung and urinary bladder adenocarcinomas and Reed-Sternberg cells in Hodgkin's disease.

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.
