Depositors Notes: The epitope appears to be linear. Does not bind native beta subunits on cells, but does bind to some C-terminally truncated forms. This antibody preferentially recognizes partially denatured beta subunits.. This antibody is excellent for Immunoblotting but does not work for Immunoprecipitation or Immunohistochemistry. Cros-reactivity with mammalian is unlikely. Weaker than mAb 24 for immunoprecipitation of native beta subunit, but better than mAb 24 for truncated subunit [PMID 7901216].
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.
