The mouse (Mus musculus or house mouse) is a precious tool for biomedical research. Mice are small easy to breed, very prolific and have a short life cycle compared to other mammals.
Mice have been used as animal models in human diseases, in cancer and in immunology. The mouse is also utilized in neurobiology where normally the rat species is preferred.
The relative ease of homologous recombination in mouse species led to the discovery of the gene knock out technique in 1989 whose milestone importance has been sanctioned by the award of the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2007.The sequencing of mouse genome in 2000 has further enhanced the potential of this small mammal model highlighting the exceptional similarities of its genes with human counterparts.
Bio-Rad offer nearly 4,000 anti-mouse antibodies and immunological reagents, covering the research areas of immunology, apoptosis, autophagy, stem cells, and neuroscience.
We are the exclusive manufacturer of many key anti mouse antibodies such as F4/80 (clone Cl:A3-1) the best known marker for mature mouse macrophages and blood monocytes, cited in over 350 peer-reviewed articles, Ly6B.2 (clone 7/4), CD206 (clone MR5D3), anti Dectin-1 (clone 2A11), and anti CD11b (clone 5C6). An extensive mouse CD marker catalog completes our offering.
Anti-mouse secondary antibodies are available in many formats and are useful in a wide range of applications, including flow cytometry (FITC & RPE), immunocytochemistry (HRP & Alk. Phos.) and Western blotting (HRP & Biotin)
The mouse species is also used to produce antibodies, mainly monoclonal antibodies.The principle of the technique was discovered in 1975 and the scientists involved were awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1984.
