Answer

Clone CI:A3-1 was the original F4/80 clone, and BM8 was created later. The primary difference between the two clones is that while CI:A3-1 will detect F4/80 on microglia, BM8 will not.

F4/80 expression is known to vary during macrophage maturation and activation, and it is expressed across a wide range of tissue macrophages. If your xenografts are peripheral then the detection of F4/80 will be similar for both clones.

Answer

The rule of the thumb is that a -80C stored antibody should be fine for the next 10 years. If you have any more questions regarding storage of our antibodies, please visit our storage guide at:

Question
Answer

There are two types of light chain in humans (as in other mammals),
kappa (κ) chain, encoded by the immunoglobulin kappa locus (IGK@) on chromosome 2 and lambda (λ) chain, encoded by the immunoglobulin lambda locus (IGL@) on chromosome 22

Antibodies are produced by B lymphocytes, each expressing only one class of light chain. Once set, light chain class remains fixed for the life of the B lymphocyte. In a healthy individual, the total kappa to lambda ratio is roughly 2:1 in serum (measuring intact whole antibodies) or 1:1.5 if measuring free light chains, with a highly divergent ratio indicative of neoplasm.
