Goat research focuses on the development, production and management of animals for milk and meat, which are significant staples in a number of countries worldwide, and fibre (cashmere and mohair). Additionally goats provide a model for the study of infectious diseases in large ruminants and related human diseases, such as Tuberculosis and Crohn’s disease.
To date there are few antibodies for cell surface markers and cytokines that have been raised against goat-specific targets, so researchers rely on products that are shown to be cross-reactive between species. Several bovine and ovine antibodies have been tested and shown to be suitable for caprine research, plus some human, canine and porcine antibodies. The table below highlights our most popular CD marker antibodies for goat research.
Additional cross-reacting antibodies for goat research: CD1w2, CD8beta, CD21, CD31, CD41/61, CD45, CD62P, CD230, MHC Class I, MHC Class II DQ DR, MHC Class II DQ, wCD44
