Product Name :
Mouse anti Nestin

Description :
| Clone 10C2 | Isotype IgG1 | Product Type Primary Antibodies | Units 0.1 mg | Host Mouse | Species Reactivity Human macaque Monkey | Application Immunocytochemistry Immunohistochemistry (frozen) Immunohistochemistry (paraffin) Western Blotting

Background :
Monoclonal antibody 10C2 was derived by fusion of P3x63Ag8.653 myeloma cells with spleen cells from a BALB/c mouse immunized with a 150-amino-acid fragment from the cloned human nestin, conjugated to glutathione S-transferase.

Source :
Nestin is a class IV intermediate filament protein abundantly produced in the developing central nervous system (CNS) and in early embryonic neuroepithelial stem cells. This cytoskeletal protein has been widely used as a predominant marker for stem/progenitor cells, glioma cells, and tumor endothelial cells. Also, it is a superior angiogenic marker to evaluate neovascularity of endothelial cells in tumors. This highly specific antibody to human nestin can aid in characterizing progenitor cells differentiating into distinct lineages, in enhancing the therapeutic potential of human neural stem/progenitor cells in the treatment of CNS diseases or injury, and in identifying neuroepithelial tumor cells. <

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 :
Antibody 10C2 is specific for nestin and suitable for immunoblotting and immunohistochemistry on frozen and paraffin-embedded tissues.

Applications :
The 10C2 nestin antibody is useful for immunocytochemistry on fixed cells, immunohistochemistry on frozen and paraffin-embedded tissues, and Western blotting. Optimal antibody dilution should be determined by titration; recommended range is 1:100 to 1:200 for immunocytochemistry and immunohistochemistry with a fluorescein or rhodamine conjugated anti-mouse secondary antibody, and 1:1000 to 1:5000 for Western blot applications using chemoluminescent detection.

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.
