SpecificityReacts with a molecule expressed on the surface of all rat granulocytes. The antigen recognized by ab93549 is also expressed by erythroid lineage cells during their developmental stages in the bone marrow.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use 0.25µg for 105-8 cells.
Use 0.25µg for 105 - 108 cells in a final volume of 100 µl.
ab91546-Mouse monoclonal IgM, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
RelevanceGranulocytes are a type of white blood cell filled with microscopic granules that are little sacs containing enzymes, compounds that digest microorganisms. They are part of the innate immune system and have somewhat nonspecific, broad-based activity. They do not respond exclusively to specific antigens, as do B-cells and T-cells.
Neutrophils, eosinophils and basophils are all types of granulocytes. They are named by the staining features of their granules in the laboratory: Neutrophils have "neutral" subtle granules; Eosinophils have prominent granules that stain readily with the acid dye eosin; and Basophils have prominent granules that stain readily basic (non acidic) dyes.
