Isotype
Mouse IgG2a
Specificity
The antibody MEM-43 reacts with well defined epitope (W40, R-53) on CD59 (Protectin), an 18-20 kDa glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored glycoprotein expressed on all hematopoietic cells; it is widely present on cells in all tissues. This antibody does not compete with MEM-43/5.
Workshop
HLDA IV: WS Code NL 705; HLDA V: WS Code AS S013; HLDA V: WS Code BP BP345; HLDA V: WS Code T T-103
Application
FC (QC tested)
Application details
Flow cytometry: The reagent is designed for analysis of human blood cells using 4 μl reagent / 100 μl of whole blood or 106 cells in a suspension. The content of a vial (0.4 ml) is sufficient for 100 tests.
Reactivity
Human
Immunogen
