Depositors Notes: MN, DRG & other nuclear characterized extensively by immunocytochemistry; works in paraformaldehyde-fixed and paraffin-embedded tissue; does not work in methanol or acetone (see Sanders et al., 2003, and Georgia et al., 2006) TEST
Gene: Isl1 & Isl2
Immunogen: Recombinant fusion protein containing aa 178-349 of Isl1 protein (C-terminus)
Additional Information: also detects Islet-2. The protein region used for immunisation lacks the LIM motifs shared with other proteins.

Storage and Handling Recommendations
Although many cell products are maintained at 4°C for years without loss of activity, shelf-life at 4°C is highly variable.
To ensure retention of antibody activity, we recommend aliquotting the product into two parts:
1) a volume of antibody stored at 4°C to be used within two weeks.
2) the remaining product diluted with an equal volume of molecular grade glycerol and stored at -20°C.
While optimal Ig concentration for an application will vary, a good starting concentration for immunohistochemistry (IHC),
immunofluorescence(IF) and staining is 2-5 µg/ml.
For Western blots, the concentration is decreased by one order of magnitude (that is, 0.2-0.5 µg/ml).
All cell products contain the antimicrobial ProClin. See our FAQ section for additional information.
