Product Name :
Mouse anti Collagen Type IV

Description :
| Clone 1043 | Isotype IgG1 | Product Type Monoclonal Antibody Primary Antibodies | Units 0.1 mg | Host Mouse | Species Reactivity Human | Application Flow Cytometry Immunohistochemistry (frozen) Immunohistochemistry (paraffin) Western Blotting

Background :
1043 is a mouse monoclonal IgG1 antibody derived by fusion of Sp 2/0 mouse myeloma cells with spleen cells from a BABL/c mouse immunized with purified human type IV collagen. The immunogen has been isolated from human placenta.

Source :
The extent of expression of the basement membrane component type IV collagen may be correlated with the degree of differentiation of basement membrane producing neoplasma. Neoplastic cells of invasive carcinomas often lack a continuous basement membrane. In diagnostic histopathology antibodies to type IV collagen may help to distinguish between non-invasive (benign or in situ) and invasive lesions. Furthermore the antiserum is important in the differential diagnosis of bullous lesions in dermatopathology. <

Product :
Each vial contains 100 ul 1mg/ml of purified monoclonal antibody in PBS containing 0.09% sodium azide Formulation: Each vial contains 100 ul 1mg/ml of purified monoclonal antibody in PBS containing 0.09% sodium azide

Specificity :
1043 recognizes type IV collagen in the extracellular – basement membranes of normal and pathological human tissues. Species Reactivity: Does not react with other species

Applications :
1043 is useful for immunoblotting, immunocytochemistry on fixed cells (methanol fixation) and immunohistochemistry on frozen tissues when using a PBS buffer containing 0.1 mM CaCl2 and 0.1 mM MgCl2 .For immunohistochemistry on paraffin sections the sections should be pretreated with 1 mg/ml pepsin in 0.01 N HCl for 30 minutes at room temperature. Optimal antibody dilution should be determined by titration; 1:50 – 1:100 for immunohistochemistry with avidin-biotinylated Horseradish peroxidase complex (ABC) as detection reagent, and 1:100 – 1:1000 for immunoblotting applications.

Storage :
The antibody is shipped at ambient temperature and may be stored at +4°C. For prolonged storage prepare appropriate aliquots and store at or below -20°C. Prior to use, an aliquot is thawed slowly in the dark at ambient temperature, spun down again and used to prepare working dilutions by adding sterile phosphate buffered saline (PBS, pH 7.2). Repeated thawing and freezing should be avoided. Working dilutions should be stored at +4°C, not refrozen, and preferably used the same day. If a slight precipitation occurs upon storage, this should be removed by centrifugation. It will not affect the performance or the concentration of the product.

Caution :
This product is intended FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY, and FOR TESTS IN VITRO, not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures involving humans or animals. It may contain hazardous ingredients. Please refer to the Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for additional information and proper handling procedures. Dispose product remainders according to local regulations.This datasheet is as accurate as reasonably achievable, but our company accepts no liability for any inaccuracies or omissions in this information.

Antibodies are immunoglobulins secreted by effector lymphoid B cells into the bloodstream. Antibodies consist of two light peptide chains and two heavy peptide chains that are linked to each other by disulfide bonds to form a “Y” shaped structure. Both tips of the “Y” structure contain binding sites for a specific antigen. Antibodies are commonly used in medical research, pharmacological research, laboratory research, and health and epidemiological research. They play an important role in hot research areas such as targeted drug development, in vitro diagnostic assays, characterization of signaling pathways, detection of protein expression levels, and identification of candidate biomarkers.
