Reactivity: Mouse
Immunogen: Mouse lymph node stromal cells
Formulation: Phosphate-buffered solution, pH 7.2, containing 0.09% sodium azide.
Preparation: The antibody was purified by affinity chromatography, and conjugated with biotin under optimal conditions. The solution is free of unconjugated biotin.
Concentration: 0.5 mg/ml
Storage & Handling: The antibody solution should be stored undiluted between 2°C and 8°C. Do not freeze.
Application:

FC - Quality tested
ICC, IHC - Reported in the literature

Application Notes:

Additional reported applications (in the relevant formats) include: immunoprecipitation, Western blotting, immunocytochemistry, and immunohistochemical staining of acetone-fixed frozen sections2-5. Clone MECA-32 is not recommended for formalin-fixed paraffin sections.

Recommended Usage:

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is ≤0.25 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Description:

MECA-32 is a 50-55 kD homodimer glycoprotein primarily expressed on most endothelial cells in the embryonic and the adult mouse tissues, except in the brain and in skeletal and cardiac muscle, where it has more restricted distribution. In skeletal and cardiac muscle, the MECA-32 antigen is confined in small arterioles and venules. But in some conditions, such as inflammation or cardiac transplantation, MECA-32 expression can be induced on some negative-cardiac endothelial cells. In the brain, its expression occurs only in the circumventricular organs and the neurohemal tissues. During embryonic development, MECA-32 antigen is expressed on the brain vasculature up to day 16 of gestation, and disappears at day 17 and after.
