Question (14699) | Anti-Factor XIIIa antibody (ab4057)

Go to datasheet (ab4057)

Question

The positive control listed for this antibody is placenta. Which placental cells should I use? In addition, the localization is listed as cytoplasmic and nuclear. Which localization gives more sensitive staining?

Answer

Thank you for your enquiry. Factor XIIIa is a coagulation protein present in the plasma. Staining is cytoplasmic. It should stain the endothelial cells of the blood vessels. It appears that the datasheet states that the cellular localization is cytoplasmic and secreted, not cytoplasmic and nuclear. I completely missed that, and I apologize. I hope this information helps. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need anything further.
