Depositors Institution: Yale University / University of Washington
Positive Tested Species Reactivity: Chick, Eukaryotes, Human, Mouse, Rat, Squid, Xenopus, Zebrafish
Depositors Notes: Y10b labels large and small subunit of ribosomes in eukaryotic cells. All ribosomal RNAs are reactive - 18S, 5.8S, 23S and maybe 5S. This antibody is an autoantibody that spontaneously developed in an SLE mouse model.
These hybridomas were created by your colleagues. Please acknowledge the hybridoma contributor and the Developmental Studies Hybridoma Bank (DSHB) in the Materials and Methods of your publications. Please email the citation to us.

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.
