Mouse anti Human placental alkaline phosphatase antibody, clone H17E2
recognizes human placental alkaline phosphatase, also known as Alkaline phosphatase Regan isozyme, Alkaline phosphatase, placental type or Placental alkaline phosphatase 1. Placental alkaline phosphatase is a 535 amino acid ~67 kDa GPI-anchored transmembrane glycoprotein bearing a 22 amino acid signal peptide and a 29 amino acid pro-peptide region, cleaved to produce the mature form. Placental alkaline phosphatase is expressed in trophoblast cells of normal human placenta (Travers et al. 1984
), in seminomas (Lange et al. 1982
)and in ovarian carcinoma (Tholander et al. 1990
Mouse anti Human placental alkaline phosphatase antibody, clone H17E2 has been widely used in immunolocalization studies of germ cell tumors and may also be used for the measurement of soluble placental alkaline phosphatase by ELISA.

Applications of Placental Alkaline Phosphatase antibody
|Immunohistology - Frozen 1
|Immunohistology - Paraffin
- 1The epitope recognised by this antibody is reported to be sensitive to formaldehyde fixation and tissue processing. Bio-Rad recommends the use of acetone fixation for frozen sections.
Where this antibody 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 antibody for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.
- Flow Cytometry
- Use 10ul of the suggested working dilution to label 106 cells in 100ul.
- Histology Positive Control Tissue
- Placenta, seminoma
