Depositors Institution: Nat. Institute of Dental Research, NIH/ Cardiff University
Positive Tested Species Reactivity: Bovine, Canine, Chicken, Fish, Human, Pig, Rat
Depositors Notes: To expose the core protein epitope, the tissue must be reduced and alkylated. Treat the tissue with 10mM dithiothreitol in TBS pH 7.4 for 2 hr at 37ºC for 2 hr. Follow by alkalation with 40 mM iodoacetamide in PBS for 2 hr.

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.
