The hybridoma was formed by the fusion of mouse myeloma NS1 cellswith spleen cells from rats immunized with B10 mouse spleen cells enrichedfor T lymphocytes.
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab8878 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|ICC/IF||Use a concentration of 1 - 5 µg/ml.|
|IF||Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 28138565|
|Flow Cyt||Use at an assay dependent concentration.
Each labeling step was carried out for 30 min at 0-4°C in mediumcontaining 0.01 M NaN3. Cells (5 x 107/ml) were incubated with 50 µl M1 monoclonal antibody or irrelevant monoclonal antibody, R4/18.2, as control in the first step, washed, suspended in 50 µl of FITC-F (ab')2 anti-rat IgGin the second step, and washed through a layer of fetal calf serum. Can also be used in cytotoxicity and binding assays.
ab18536 - Rat monoclonal IgG2b, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
ab8878 stained in Raw264.7cells. Cells were fixed with 100% methanol (5 min) at room temperature and incubated with PBS containing 10% goat serum, 0.3 M glycine, 1% BSA and 0.1% tween for 1h at room temperature to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody ab8878 at 1µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibodies was ab150165 Goat Anti-Rat IgG H&L (Alexa Fluor® 488) preadsorbed (colored green) used at 1 ug/ml for 1hour at room temperature. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (colored blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM for 1hour at room temperature.
Overlay histogram showing Human macrophages stained with ab8878 (blue line). Cells were incubated with human immunoglobulin for 30 min at 4°C to block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab8878, 20 µg/mL) for 30 min at 4ºC. The secondary antibody used was a mouse anti-rat FITC (IgG2b gamma chain) (ab99671) at 1 µg/mL for 30 min at 4ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was Rat IgG2b [RTK4530] (ab18541) used under the same conditions.
Overlay histogram showing Human macrophages stained with ab8878 (red line). Cells were pre-incubated in Human AB serum (10%) for 20 mins at 4ºC. Cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab8878, 0.1µg/1x10^6 cells) for 30 min at 4ºC. The secondary antibody used was a goat anti-rat Alexa Fluor® 488 (IgG H+L) (ab150165) at 1/2000 dilution for 30 min at 4ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was rat IgG2b [RTK4530] (ab18541, 1µg/1x10^6 cells) used under the same conditions. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control. Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 20mW Argon ion laser (488nm) and 525/30 bandpass filter.
