Leishmania LPG antibody | CA7AE
Mouse anti Leishmania lipophosphoglycan antibody, clone CA7AE recognizes the promastigotes of Leishmania donovani but not those of the related species L. tropica (Jaffe and Sarfstein 1987, Sundar et al. 2001). Mouse anti Leishmania lipophosphoglycan antibody, clone CA7AE does however recognize a broad range of L. donovani and L. major strains and related species including L. infantum, L. m. mexicana, L. aethiopica and L. b. panamensis (Tolson et al. 1994).
- Target Species
- Product Form
- Ascites - lyophilised
- 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. For long term storage the addition of 0.09% sodium azide is recommended.
- Preservative Stabilisers
- None present
- Heat killed Leishmania donovani promastigotes.
- Fusion Partners
- Spleen cells from immunised BALB/c mice were fused with cells of the murine SP2/0 myeloma cell line.
- 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.
- 12 months from date of despatch
- For research purposes only
