(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.

DESMOGLEIN  (new cat# replaces old cat#RDI-CBL174)

-see also other desmoglein , desmoplakin  and more  antibodies from the alphabetical list

Mab to Desmoglein 1 + 2

cat# RDI-PRO61002 $375.00/vial Bulk quotes on request

cat#RDI-PRO61002X $2500.00/1mg (no BSA)

Clone Determination               DG 3.10

Category                                 Mouse monoclonal

Immunoglobulin                      Class IgG1

Purification                             SpAss-Protein A (recombinant)

Antigen                                   "Band 3" polypeptide of isolated desmosomes from bovine muzzle epidermis

Specificity                               DG 3.10 recognizes desmoglein 1 +2 in desmosome- bearing cells; does not react with cells containing plaque-bearing junctions of non desmosomal type

Polypeptide reacting :           Mr165 000 Desmoglein, "band 3" polypeptide of the desmosomal complex. Epitope recognized has been localized at the repeating unit domain ("RUD") of the cytoplasmic C-terminal part of the polypeptide.

Application                           Suitable for frozen tissue Immunoblotting (Western)

                                              NEW: Suitable for paraffin-embedded tissue when using the MICROWAVE method.

Stability                                One year after reconstitution when stored at 2-8C

                                              For longer storage aliquots should be kept at -20 Deg C.

Quantity                                50 µg (lyoph.) After reconstitution with 1 ml distilled water, solution will contain 0.5% BSA and 0.09% NaN3.

Antigen Recognized in Species (tested so far) Human, bovine, rat, mouse

Reactivities on Cultured Cell Lines (tested so far) A-431, MCF-7, TR-146, PLC and various other human epithelial cell lines; bovine BMGE+H, BMGE-H, MDBK

Tumors Specifically Detected             All epithelium derived tumors, notably carcinomas, and meningiomas

Working Dilution            When reconstituted with 1ml distilled water, dilute further 1:10 with PBS, pH 7.4 for immunohistochemical application.

Incubation Time             1h at RT
