|Immunogen:||Human AML cells|
|Species Reactivity:||Human, Non-Human Primates|
|Preparation:||The purified antibody is conjugated with Fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) under optimum conditions. The reagent is free of unconjugated FITC and adjusted for direct use. No reconstitution is necessary.|
|Storage Buffer:||The reagent is provided in phosphate buffered saline (PBS) containing 15 mM sodium azide and 0.2% (w/v) high-grade protease free Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a stabilizing agent.|
|Storage / Stability:||Store in the dark at 2-8°C. Do not freeze. Avoid prolonged exposure to light.
Do not use after expiration date stamped on vial label.
Short-term exposure to room temperature should not affect the quality of the reagent. However, if reagent is stored under any conditions other than those specified, the conditions must be verified by the user.
|Usage:||The reagent is designed for Flow Cytometry analysis of human blood cells using 20 μl reagent / 100 μl of whole blood or 106 cells in a suspension.
The content of a vial (2 ml) is sufficient for 100 tests.
|Expiration:||See vial label|
|Lot Number:||See vial label|
|Background:||CD13 (aminopeptidase N, APN) is a 150 kDa type II transmembrane zinc-binding ectopeptidase expressed on various cell types. This metalloprotease preferentially catalyzes removal of neutral amino acids from small peptides, thus activating or inactivating bioactive peptides. CD13 has also role in extracellular matrix degradation, antigen processing and signal transduction, is important in inflammatory responses, regulates intercellular contact, cell motility and vascularization. CD13 is involved in protection of leukemic cells against apoptosis and its expression associated with poor prognosis of carcinomas.|
