Depositors Institution: University of California - Berkeley
Positive Tested Species Reactivity: Drosophila
Depositors Notes: 9B2.1 Ab recognizes the Drosophila protein glass. Glass is expressed at high levels in the nucleus of the developing photoreceptor cells in a sequence that reflects their acquisition of neuronal identity. 9B2.1 gives strong staining of the morphogenetic furrow and all of the cells that arise from the furrow.
Additional Information: RRID: AB_528268. FBgn0004618. Use periodate-lysine-paraformaldehyde (PLP) fix only.
Recommended Applications: 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.
