Monoclonal Antibody to IgA Secretory Component / ECM1(Clone : SPM217)
This MAb reacts with a reduction-resistant epitope present in both free and SIgA bound Secretory Component. It does not react with the cell lines lacking secretory component. The antibody is useful for studying the distribution and level of both free and bound secretory component. Secretory component is differentially expressed in epithelium, and the antibody is a popular marker for identifying subpopulations of epithelial cells and epithelial differentiation. The Secretory component antibody is a useful research tool for studying mucosal immunity, inflammation, remodeling, differentiation and tumorigenesis, all processes associated with differential secretory component expression.
|Purification :||Affinity Chromatography|
|Content :||100 µg in 500 µl PBS containing 0.05% BSA and 0.05% sodium azide. Sodium azide is highly toxic.|
|Storage condition :||Store the antibody at 4°C; stable for 6 months. For long-term storage; store at -20°C. Avoid repeated freeze and thaw cycles.|
Flow Cytometry (0.5-1µg/million cells in 0.1ml); Immunofluorescence (1-2µg/ml); Immunohistology (Formalin-fixed) (0.5-1µg/ml for 30 minutes at RT); (Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires boiling tissue sections in 10mM Citrate Buffer, pH 6.0, for 10-20 min followed by cooling at RT for 20 minutes); Optimal dilution for a specific application should be determined.
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic/therapeutics procedures.
|Tissue Specificity:||Expressed in breast cancer tissues. Little or no expression observed in normal breast tissues. Expressed in skin; wide expression is observed throughout the dermis with minimal expression in the epidermis.|
