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, 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.

Myeloma/fusion partner: NSO myeloma cells fused with spleen cells from A/J mice.

Source: TCS

Purification Method: none

Antigen: Bovine myelin basic Protein fragment (45-91) coupled to Ovalbumin


Specificity: Approx epitope between aa 82-91 (human) & 45- 91 (bovine) (Martensen numbering) but not with the whole MBP molecule.

DATA SHEET:   MYELIN BASIC PROTEIN (bovine)

Myelin basic protein is a major component of the myelin sheath that coats neurons of the central nervous system. The exact physiological function of MBP remains unknown,although it has been implicated to play a role on the maintenance of the structural integrity of myelin. MBP is phosphorylated at five and possibly more sites in vivo.

In vitro, MBP is a substrate for phosphorylation by several different protein kinases such as MAP kinase, cAmp dependent protein kinase, calmodulin dependent kinase, protein kinase C and phosphorylase kinase. Even highly specific protein kinases such as RAF1, MEK and Mekk can utilize MBP as an alternate substrate.
