Other gene names
NKI-M7 (former AMF7)
Also known as
vitronectin receptor CD51
Mouse (Mus musculus) (Balb/c)
ELISA (EIA), Flow Cytometry (FC), Immunohistochemistry (IHC) (frozen), Immunoprecipitation (IP)
Each vial contains 100 ul 1 mg/ml purified monoclonal antibody in PBS containing 0.09% sodium azide.
Storage and shipping
Store the antibody at +4 degrees Celsius., or in small aliquots the antibody should be stored at -20 degrees Celsius.
Human (Homo sapiens); Due to limited knowledge and inability for testing each and every species, the reactivity of the antibody may extend to other species which are not listed hereby.
Human proteins, cDNA and human recombinants are used in human reactive ELISA kits and to produce anti-human mono and polyclonal antibodies. Modern humans (Homo sapiens, primarily ssp. Homo sapiens sapiens). Depending on the epitopes used human ELISA kits can be cross reactive to many other species. Mainly analyzed are human serum, plasma, urine, saliva, human cell culture supernatants and biological samples.
MBS Monoclonals supplies antibodies that are for research of human proteins.Mouse or mice from the Mus musculus species are used for production of mouse monoclonal antibodies or mabs and as research model for humans in your lab. Mouse are mature after 40 days for females and 55 days for males. The female mice are pregnant only 20 days and can give birth to 10 litters of 6-8 mice a year. Transgenic, knock-out, congenic and inbread strains are known for C57BL/6, A/J, BALB/c, SCID while the CD-1 is outbred as strain.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.The receptors are ligand binding factors of type 1, 2 or 3 and protein-molecules that receive chemical-signals from outside a cell. When such chemical-signals couple or bind to a receptor, they cause some form of cellular/tissue-response, e.g. a change in the electrical-activity of a cell. In this sense, am olfactory receptor is a protein-molecule that recognizes and responds to endogenous-chemical signals, chemokinesor cytokines e.g. an acetylcholine-receptor recognizes and responds to its endogenous-ligand, acetylcholine. However, sometimes in pharmacology, the term is also used to include other proteins that are drug-targets, such as enzymes, transporters and ion-channels.
Specificity and cross-reactivity
T-lymphocyte clones NKI-M7 detect a melanoma-associated proteoglycan (MW greater than 450-250 kDa) and a molecular complex, which under reducing conditions consists of 4 compounds of 120, 95, 29 and 25 kDa respectively. NKI-M7 reacts with cultured melanomas melanomas in frozen sections. The antigen detected by NKI-M7 is strongly associated with the adhesion and cytoplasmic spreading of melanoma cells to plastic surfaces and monolayers of vascular endothelial cells. NKI-M7 blocks fibronectin-induced chemotaxic motility and chemokinesis of melanoma cells. In addition to their membrane localization, the antigens detected by NKI-M7are abundant in extracellular adhesion plaques deposited by cultured melanoma cells. NKI-M7 stains primary tumors heterogeneously, whereas metastases are homogeneously stained.; Since it is not possible to test each and every species our knowledge on the corss reactivity of the antibodies is limited. This particular antibody might cross react with speacies outside of the listed ones.
