  • Relevance

    CD15 is a carbohydrate adhesion molecule (and not a protein) that mediates phagocytosis and chemotaxis. Synthesis is directed by FUT4 in lymphoid cells and mature granulocytes, and by FUT9 in promyelocytes and monocytes.
  • Cellular localization

    Golgi Apparatus; Membrane-bound form in trans cisternae of Golgi.

  • IHC image of CD15 staining in Human tonsil formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section*. The section was pre-treated using pressure cooker heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6). The section was incubated with ab17080, 1µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature.  A Goat polyclonal Secondary Antibody to Mouse IgM secondary antibody (ab97230) was used to detect the primary, and visualized using an HRP conjugated ABC system. The section was counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

  • Human whole blood stained with ab17080 (right) or mouse IgM isotype control ab91545 (left). Red blood cells of 200ul human whole blood were lysed, then cells were incubated for 30 min on ice in 1x PBS containing 10ug/ml human IgG and 10 % normal goat serum to block FC receptors and non-specific protein-protein interaction followed by the antibody (ab17080 ) or IgM isotype control (ab91545) (100ul at 1ug/ml) for 30 min on ice.

    The secondary antibody Goat Anti-Mouse IgM mu chain (Alexa Fluor® 488) (ab150121) was used at 1/2000 dilution for 30 min at 4° C. Acquisition of >30,000 events were collected using a 50 mW Blue laser (488nm) and 530/30 bandpass filter. Events were collected with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable cells.

Thank you for your patience.

I have received an update from the lab and unfortunately they are unable to conjugate this antibody with fluorophores. Therefore the conjugation kits we provide would be the most suitable alternative. If you have any further questions just let me know.

Apologies for any inconvenience.

Thank you for your patience.

I am still waiting for the lab to confirm whether it will be possible to conjugate the clone MMA (Anti-CD15 antibody) to APC, APC/Cy7 or Alexa fluor 647.

We have a number of conjugation kits that enable you to conjugate antibodies with APC/Cy7. Here are the links to the products.

ab102856 EasyLink APC/Cy7® Conjugation Kit (1 x 1mg APC/Cy7®)

ab102857 EasyLink APC/Cy7® Conjugation Kit (1x100µg APC/Cy7®)

ab102858 EasyLink APC/Cy7® Conjugation Kit (3x100µg APC/Cy7®)

ab102859 EasyLink APC/Cy7® Conjugation Kit (3 x 10µg APC/Cy7®)

I will provide further information about purchasing already conjugated antibodies as soon as I receive information from the lab.
