Positive Tested Species Reactivity: Cephalopod, Crustacean, Drosophila, Insect, Invertebrate, Leech, Mosquito, Planaria, Rat
Depositors Notes: Cross-reacts with many invertebrate species. Stains neuropil and synaptic active zones. 3C11 recognizes the synapsin-1 cleaved fragment. Immunostaining is improved when fixed with zinc-formaldehyde instead of formaldehyde which allows for greater penetration of the 3C11 mAb in whole-mount brains. See PMID: 18585788.
Predicted Species Reactivity:
Immunogen: GST-Synapsin-GST fusion protein expressed in E. coli and purified by glutathione affinity.
Recommended Applications: FFPE, Immunofluorescence, Immunohistochemistry, Western Blot

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.
