  • Relevance
    Blood group antigens are generally defined as molecules formed by sequential addition of saccharides to the carbohydrate side chains of lipids and proteins detected on erythrocytes and certain epithelial cells. The A, B and H antigens are reported to undergo modulation during malignant cellular transformation. Blood group related antigens represent a group of carbohydrate determinants carried on both glycolipids and glycoproteins. They are usually mucin type, and are detected on erythrocytes, certain epithelial cells, and in secretions of certain individuals. Sixteen genetically and biosynthetically distinct but inter related specificities belong to this group of antigens, including A, B, H, Lewis A, Lewis B, Lewis X, Lewis Y, and precursor type 1 chain antigens.

Thank you for your inquiry.

ab2524 recognizes the blood group B antigen. This antigen is expressed on erythrocytes when the person has blood group B or AB.

I suggest to use erythrocytes from blood group B as positive control.

Unfortunately, I have to confirm that we do not sell this.

Recommending a different anti blood group B antibody will not solves this problem, since they allneed the blood group B antigen as positive control.

I hope this information is helpful and wish you good luck with your research.

Thank you for your enquiry and your interest in our products. We can offer testing discount for untested species/application and also for images for tested application.   I can confirm that ab24222 has not been tested yet in IHC; whilst ab2521 and ab2524 both have been tested for IHC-P (however no image available yet) so testing discount can also be requested. We can offer you one discount code for one product only first; however after publishing the Abreview we can certainly offer a new discount code for the other product you wish to test.   You can find some further information about our testing scheme at this site: The Terms and Conditions of this offer can be found at: www.abcam.com/collaborationdiscount.

I enquired again with the originator of ab2522 and ab2524 and the only information that they were able to give me is that the tissue culture medium is 10% Fetal calf serum at the beginning of cultivation.

Thank you for your enquiry. Regarding ab2522 and ab2524, no other additives were added to the tissue culture supernatant except azide for preservation. Antibody concentration has not been determined, only specifity by agglutination was performed to confirm antibody is working well. A rough estimate would be between 50-300 ug/ml.
