Rat anti Mouse ER-TR7 antibody, clone ER-TR7 recognizes ER-TR7, an antigen that is located in the cytoplasm of reticular fibroblasts and is a component of the extracellular matrix of lymphoid and non-lymphoid organs. The antigen recognized by clone ER-TR7 has not been identified but studies suggest that it is likely to be distinct from laminin, fibronectin, collagen types I-IV, heparin sulphate proteoglycan, entactin and nidogen. Clone ER-TR7 has been used to stain the microanatomy of various organs and also stains subendothelial deposits in atherosclerotic plaques.

Applications of ER-TR7 antibody
|Flow Cytometry 1
|Immunohistology - Frozen
- 1Membrane permeabilisation is required for this application. Bio-Rad recommends the use of Leucoperm™ (Product Code BUF09) for this purpose.
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 1x106 cells in 100ul.
- Histology Positive Control Tissue
