Positive Tested Species Reactivity: Bovine, Chick, Fish, Human, Mouse, Ovine, Rabbit, Rat, Xenopus
Depositors Notes: Stains hyaluronidase-treated fetal and adult mouse and human cartilage in vitro as well as mouse cartilage in vivo. This antibody recognizes native triple-helical type II collagen. It does not bind to denatured type II collagen (PMID: 25005029).
Additional Information: The CIIC1 antibody induces sub clinical arthritis if injected at low (0.5 mg) doses and clinical arthritis in mice if injected at higher doses and in combination with other antibodies (see [PMID: 16125192]).
Recommended Applications: ELISA, 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.
