(anti-Human and others as indicated)

RDI Divison of researchd 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.

Mouse anti-Tyrosinase

Reactivity: human (weak with mouse)(others not tested)

Uses: -Western blot: 1ug/ml for 2 hours rt

            -histochemistry (frozen and paraffin sections) approx 2-4ug/ml for 60 minutes RT

              -for paraffin sections, requires boiling tissue sections in 1mM EDTA pH8.0 for 10-20 minutes followed by

            cooling at RT for 20 minutes.   -approx ab concentration 2-4ug/ml for 1 hr RT


            -Elisa (order BSA free formulation)

Pos Ctrl: Melanoma cell lines (SK-MEL-13, SK-MEL-19, SK-MEL-30,   SK-MEL37) melanocytes in skin and melanomas.

Localization: Cytoplasmic

Background: Recognizes a cluster of proteins between 70-80kDa,identified as tyrosinase.1 Occasionally a minor band at 55kDa is also detected.1 This Mab shows no cross-reaction with MAGE-1 and tyrosinase-related protein 1, TRP-1/gp75. 1 Tyrosinase is a copper-containing metalloglycoprotein that catalyzes several steps in the melanin pigment biosynthetic pathway; the hydroxylation of tyrosine to L-3,4-dihydroxy-phenylalanine(dopa), and the subsequent oxidation of dopa to dopaquinone. Mutations of the tyrosinase gene occur in various forms of albinism. Tyrosinase is one of the targets for cytotoxic T-cell recognition in melanoma patients. Staining of melanomas with this Mab showed tyrosinase in elanotic as well as amelanotic variants.
