Code N°


AM505: Amyloid A




Price: 190 € / 5 ml

Monoclonal Antibodies

Origin:Mouse
 
Isotype:IgG2a
 
Clone:mc1
 
Format:ready to use
 
Quantity:5 ml
 
Working concentration:neat
 
Presentation:Antibody solution in stabilizing phosphate buffer pH 7.3. Contains 0.09 % sodium azide**. The volume is sufficient for at least 50 immunohistochemical tests (100 µl working solution / test). Use appropriate antibody diluent e.g. BIOLOGO Art. No. PU002, if further dilution is required.
 
Immunogen:Purified Amyloid A
 
Specificity:Human Amyloid Type AA
 
Species Specificity:Human
 
General Information:Amyloidosis describes a disease during which fibrillary proteins are secreted into the extracellular space of different organs. Histological stainings demonstrate eosinophilic deposits, which progressively displace surrounding parenchymatous tissues, resulting in the loss of organ function and eventually death. Chronic inflammation (type AA-amyloidosis) and plasma cell dyscrasia (type AL-amyloidosis) are the most frequent forms of amyloidosis occurring e.g. in kidney and rectal tissue. In neighbourhood of hemodialysis more frequently cases of amyloidosis of the B2M type have been reported.
 
Special properties:The antibody mc1 detects amyloid type AA. It may be used for the detection of protein deposits (which are not easily detected by HE staining), and will help distinguishing from amyloid types AL and B2M. The antibody may also be used for screening purposes in kidney and rectal biopsies.
 
Positive control:Kidney with amyloid deposits
 
Pre-treatment:No protease pre-treatment required, but microwave treatment usually will intensify staining. We refer to BIOLOGO's Unmasking Fluid G (Art. No. DE007).
 
Applications:C, P
 
Incubation time:60 min at RT
 
Secondary reagents:We recommend the use of BIOLOGO's Universal Staining System DAB (Art. No. DA005) or AEC (Art.-No. AE005), if higher sensitivity is required VECTASTAIN Elite ABC (Art. No. PK-6102) or ABC AP (Art. No. AK-5002) systems are applicable.
 
Storage:2-8°C

Notes:
** The preservative sodium azide is known to be poisonous and potentially hazardous to health. It should be handled only by trained staff. Despite of the product's low azide concentration it must be handled with care. Dispose according to regional rules!

BIOLOGO antibodies are intended for in vitro research use only. They must not be used for clinical diagnostics and not for in vivo experiments in humans or animals.
