  ANTIBODIES  

(anti-Human and others as indicated)

RDI Divison of Fitzgerald Industries Intl  offers a wide line of  antibodies. Since no one antibody works best for all applications (neutralization, blotting, ELISA, etc), we offer many different types of antibodies to help solve this problem. Please inquire for other applications or types of antibodies not listed below.

ref: -J. Immunol., 137:2913(1986)

      -J. Immunol., 143:2317 (1989)

Storage: Store at -20 DEG C. Avoid frequent warming cycles.

Background: Upon activation, eospinohils secrete several cationic proteins including major basic protein (MBP), eosinophil cationic protein (ECP) eosinophil peroxidase) and eosinophil derived neurotoxin (EDN). EDN, also called eosinophil protein X (EPX) is a glycosylated single chain protein with a molecular weight 18-21kDa and is a member of the ribonuclease A superfamily along with ECP. Although EDN has  high sequence homology to ECP, EDN has 100 fold greater ribonuclease activity than ECP and nurotoxicity but not cytotoxicity. Eosinophil and its activation have been found to play an important role in inflammatory processes in allergic diseases. EDN can be a marker of eosinophil activation and degranulation.
