    • PC12 cells were used for a FACS analysis with ab8872 that reacts with the rat Thy1.1. Cells were treated with ab8872 at a 1:100 dilution and subsequently with anti-murine IgG-FITC. A 90% shift is seen as compared to the non-treated control.

    Thank you for your enquiry regarding ab8872. This antibody recognizes rat or mouse Thy 1.1 and was created as a mouse monoclonal generated to rat Thy 1.1 (CD90). Do not hesitate to contact us again if you need further assistance,
