Positive Tested Species Reactivity: Schmidtea mediterranea
Depositors Notes: Labels a subpopulation of neurons in the peripheral nervous system with projections into the ventral nerve cords and ventral region of the cephalic ganglia; extensively labels the submuscular nerve plexus and is detected in the subepidermal nerve plexus. 1H6 appears to recognize an antigen found in the axonal projections of sensory neurons.
Immunogen: Formaldehyde-fixed cells from regenerating blastema of C1W4 clonal lineage

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.
