we would like to order 2 antibodies from your company: ab14421 (beta 1 defensin, rabbit, polyclonal) and ab14425 (beta 1 defensin, mouse, monoclonal). however, we need a positive control for our western blot and for ELISA. do you provide a positive control for human beta 1 defensin (e.g. cell lysate)? how long would it take to deliver these antibodies to austria?

Thank you for your enquiry. Human beta-1 defensin is expressed in kidney. Therefore, I would suggest you can use a human kidney whole cell lysate such as our peptide product ab30203. I have placed a link here to a reference I hope you may find useful from BMC Infectious Diseases; Expression of human beta-defensins 1 and 2 in kidneys with chronic bacterial infection (Jan Lehmann1 et al) http://www.biomedcentral.com/content/pdf/1471-2334-2-20.pdf Alternatively, you could use a purified beta-1 defensin peptide/protein. I hope this is helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact us again if you require more assistance.
