Description :
| Clone 29A3 | Isotype IgG1 | Product Type Primary Antibodies | Units 0.1 mg | Host Mouse | Species Reactivity Human | Application Immunocytochemistry Immunohistochemistry (frozen) Western Blotting

Background :
29A3 is a Mouse monoclonal IgG1, κ antibody derived by fusion of SP2/0 Mouse myeloma cells with spleen cells from a BALB/c Mouse immunized with a synthetic peptide corresponding to the cytoplasmic domain of the integrin subunit α3A including an additional N-terminal cysteine (CRTRALYEAKRQKAEMKSQPSETERLTDDY) coupled to keyhole limpet hemocyanin.

Source :
Integrins are a family of heterodimeric membrane glycoproteins consisting of non-covalently associated α and β subunits. More than 18 α and 8 β subunits with numerous splice variant isoforms have been identified in mammals. In general, integrins function as receptors for extracellular matrix proteins. Certain integrins can also bind to soluble ligands or to counter-receptors on adjacent cells, such as the intracellular adhesion molecules (ICAMs), resulting in aggregation of cells. Signals transduced by integrins play a role in many biological processes, including cell growth, differentiation, migRation and apoptosis. For integrin subunits α3 and α6, two cytoplasmic variants, A and B, have been identified. <

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

Specificity :
29A3 recognizes specifically the cytoplasmic domain of integrin subunit α3A which is present in the basal cell layer in skin, glomeruli, Bowman’s capsules and distal tubuli in kidney, all vascular and capillary endothelia in brain, heart and skin, and vascular smooth muscle cells in heart. Species Reactivity: A broad species reactivity is expected because of the conserved nature of the epitope.

Applications :
29A3 is suitable for immunoblotting, immunocytochemistry and immunohistochemistry on frozen tissues. Optimal antibody dilution should be determined by titration; recommended range is 1:100 – 1:200 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.

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.
