Mouse anti Human CD72 antibody, clone Bu40 recognizes human CD72, a ~86 kDa cell surface homodimer expressed on B lymphocytes. CD72 is expressed on early B cell precursors, through to mature activated B cells, but is lost upon terminal differentiation to plasma cells.

Applications of CD72 antibody
|Immunohistology - Frozen
|Immunohistology - Paraffin 1
- 1This product requires protein digestion pre-treatment of paraffin sections e.g. trypsin or pronase. Successful staining has also been accomplished using heat mediated antigen retrieval in citrate buffer pH6.0, see Lorenzi et al. for details
Where this product has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. Suggested working dilutions are given as a guide only. It is recommended that the user titrates the product for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.
- Flow Cytometry
- Use 10ul of the suggested working dilution to label 1x106 cells in 100ul.
