Human Factor I purified from plasma.
Factor I is a plasma protein of molecular weight 88 kDa, consisting of two disulphide linked chains of 50 and 38 kDa. Factor I is a serine protease with a high degree of specificity for C3b and C4b. It has a requirement for protein cofactors for cleavage of these complement proteins, Factor H, CR1 or MCP are required for C3b cleavage and C4bp or CR1 for C4b cleavage.
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab8843 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|ELISA||Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 20016463|
|Other||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|Double Immunodiffusion||Use at an assay dependent concentration. 10µL antiserum vs 10µL fresh plasma.|
|Immunoelectrophoresis||Use at an assay dependent concentration. 100µL antiserum vs 10µL fresh plasma.|
|RID||Use at an assay dependent concentration. 1.5µL antiserum/cm² gel vs 10µL fresh plasma.|
ICC/IF image of ab8843 stained HepG2 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal donkey serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody ab8843 at 1/200 dilution overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (pseudo-colored green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 donkey anti- Sheep (ab150177) IgG used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (pseudo-colored red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h at room temperature. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (pseudo-colored blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM for 1hour at room temperature.
