RDI Divison of Fitzgerald Industries Intl  offers a wide line of  antibodies. Since no one antibody works best for all applications (flow cytometry, neutralization, blotting, histochemistry, 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. All products are for in vitro research use only-not for use in or on humans or animals-not for use in diagnostics. Price/availability/specifications subject to change without notice.

Anti-MOUSE  CD138 Antibodies

see below monoclonal and polyclonals

DATA SHEET:  Rat anti-mouse CD138 (Syndecan-1/Plasma Cells) ,  monoclonal

Catalog#: RDI-MCD138-2812    Price: $469.00/1pkg    $438.00/3 or more BULK ON REQUEST

-also avialble:Biotin labeled cat#RDI-MCD138BT $562.00/0.5mg

Package Size: 0.5mg in 0.5ml

Supplied: purified ab in Tris with 0.1% NaN3

Clone: 281-2

Antigen: NAMRU mouse derived normal mammary gland epithelial cell line NMuMG.

Ig Isotype: rat IgG2aK

Purification: Purified from ascites

Reactivity: Reacts with mouse plasma cells (syndecan-1,CD138). This antibody reacts with the core protein of syndecan-1, cell surface integral membrane heparin sulfate and chondroitin sulfate containing proteoglycan that binds to interstitial extracellular matrix molecules. The predominant location of syndecan-1 is on epithelial cells where its expression correates with normal epithelial orgnization. It is also expressed on B lymphocytes at specific stages in their differentiation, being found on precursor B cells in the bone marrow but not on mature B cells and it has been reported to be a specific marker of antibody secreting cells (plasma cells). It is thus implicated in mediating B cell matrix interactions. Syndecan-1 expression is also regulated during embryonic development and the molecule shows a tissue-specific structural polymorphism resultg from different post-translational modifications. This clone may be used to detect different glycosylated forms since it reacts with the core protein.

USE: -flow cytometry (approx 1ug/1 million cells) (due to low expression, it is recommended to use a biotinylated second step antibodyy along with Streptavidin-PE)


       -western blot with cationic membrane

       -histochemistry (acetone fixed frozen sections)

      -paraffin embedded sectiosn
