Hello, I am writing in reference to an anti-CD9 antibody with the Clone ID: EPR2949, and catalog number 2739-1. In the product information, it states that the antibody is cross-reactive with mouse. However, it states that the antibody is recommended for western blot only in mice. I was wondering if the antibody has been tested in immunofluoresence with mice and whether it has been shown to be ineffective for immunofluoresence. Thank you for any information you can give me in regard to this antibody.

Yes, this antibody should work in mouse for Immunofluorescence. The reference below (also on our datasheet) has used this antibody for IF in mouse.
