Depositors Notes: UH1 recognizes native, methanol-fixed, and PLP-fixed hamster antigen. Doesn't recognize rat, mouse or monkey antigens. UH1 Labels presumptive lysosomes (and late endosomes). For best immunochemistry results, fix cells with methanol or with (para)formaldehyde-lysine-periodate formulation; for the latter, permeabilize with saponin, not with Triton X-100 or NP-40. Unfixed cells that have been permeabilized with saponin can also be stained. For immunoprecipitation, the antigen solubilized with Triton X-100 will bind to GL2A7 coupled to a matrix.
Immunogen: Membrane glycoproteins pre-extracted with saponin from Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells and triton-X100-solubilized. Glycoproteins were affinity-purified by binding to wheat-germ agglutinin. The fractions eluting with N-acetyl D-glucosamine were used.
Recommended Applications: Immunofluorescence, Immunoprecipitation, 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.
