I am looking for primary antibody against mks-5 for work with human cells. Application is immunofluorescence microscopy. I was wondering if you had suggestions of products that would fit my requirements.

Thank you for contacting Abcam.
We currently do not have any product against the C.elegans protein MKS-5 nor will our products against a similar proteinRPGRIP1L recognize MKS-5. A protein with a similar name is MSK5X (also known as CD99). We do have a large selection of antibodies against this target. Ab8855 (https://www.abcam.com/CD99-antibody-12E7-ab8855.html) has been tested in ICC/IF while ab108297 (https://www.abcam.com/CD99-antibody-EPR3096-ab108297.html) and ab75858 (https://www.abcam.com/CD99-antibody-EPR3097Y-ab75858.html) are both guaranteed to work in ICH and ICC on human samples.
Abcam also carries a number of reagents for IF staining, including serums and blocking reagents, mounting media and background reducing buffers. OurBrightMount Plus Aqueous Mounting Medium for Fluorescent Staining (ab103748;https://www.abcam.com/BrightMount-Plus-25ml-Aqueous-Mounting-Medium-Anti-fading-for-Fluorescent-Staining-ab103748.html) is specifically designed for use in IF and would protect against photo-bleaching of your samples.
I hope that this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions or there are other ways that Abcam may help you meet your research goals.
