Mouse anti Human Eosinophil Major Basic Protein antibody, clone BMK-13 recongises the Eosinophil Major Basic Protein (EMBP), a 117 amino acid protein, corresponding to residues 106-222 of Bone marrow proteoglycan (precursor). Mouse anti Human Eosinophil Major Basic Protein antibody, clone BMK-13 stains both resting and activated eosinophils of bronchial and skin sections of allergic and normal sites and may be considered a Pan eosinophil marker. Mouse anti Human Eosinophil Major Basic Protein antibody, clone BMK-13 cross reacts weakly with basophils which also contain low levels of EMBP. No cross reactivity with other human cells or proteins has been noted.

  1. 1 It is recommended that sections are fixed in a 1:1 mixture of acetone and methanol and air-dried for 1 hour. Good results may be achieved via staining with the APAAP method.
  2. 2 This product requires enzymatic pre-treatment of paraffin sections prior to staining. Pepsin is recommended for this purpose. NB. Heat-mediated antigen retrieval methods should not be used.
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.
