Form of antibody:
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blot, Immunohistochemistry
Target of this antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA and 0.01% thimerosal.
Alternative names of antibody target:
ICAM1 , P3.58 , BB2 , CD54
Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml) and Immunohistochemistry (5 µg/ml). It detects multiple isoforms of ICAM-2. However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
Clonality of antibody:
Cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) are a family of closely related cell surface glycoproteins involved in cell-cell interactions during growth and are thoμght to play an important role in embryogenesis and development. The family contains NCAM (for neuronal cell adhesion molecule), ICAM (for intercellular adhesion molecule), VCAM (vascular cell adhesion molecule), PECAM-1 (platelet/endothelial cell adhesion molecule-1), etc. ICAM-2 is involved in lymphocyte recirculation by blocking LFA-1-dependent cell adhesion.
Concentration of antibody:
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.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by biovision antibodies-kits-proteins they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
