Mouse anti Kinetoplastid Membrane Protein 11 antibody, clone L-157 recognizes Kinetoplastid Membrane Protein-11 (KMP-11), previously known as the lipophosphoglycan-associated protein (LPGAP), a 92 amino acid ~11 kDa membrane protein. Mouse anti Kinetoplastid Membrane Protein 11 antibody, clone L-157 was originally derived against Leishmania donovani lipophosphoglycan, but found to recognize the tightly associated LPGAP. KMP-11 is found in a wide variety of Kinetoplastid parasites including African trypanosomes, Leishmania and Crithidia (Tolson et al. 1994).

Product Details

Reconstitute with 0.5 ml distilled water
Care should be taken during reconstitution as the protein may appear as a film at the bottom of the vial. Bio-Rad recommend that the vial is gently mixed after reconstitution.
Preservative Stabilisers
None present
L. donovani lipophosphoglycan semi purified from epimastigotes.
Fusion Partners
Spleen cells from immunised BALB/c mice were fused with cells of the SP2/0 myeloma cell line.

Storage Information

Prior to reconstitution store at +4oC.
After reconstitution store at -20oC.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended. This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
