  • Relevance

    The genus Listeria comprises six species: L. monocytogenes, L. innocua, L. welshimeri, L. seeligeri, L. ivanovii and L. grayi. Listeria monocytogenes, the most commonly isolated pathogenic member, is associated with a wide spectrum of human and animal diseases. In the smear from the original tissue, L. monocytogenes may appear as gram-positive coccobacilli that may be confused with Streptococcus agalactiae (group B), enterococci, or Corynebacterium spp. Listeria is differentiated from streptococci by a positive catalase test. L. monocytogenes is the only species of the genus Listeria that has been clearly documented as a pathogen for humans. The forms of disease caused by this organism are myriad and age-related. The most common clinical manifestations are meningitis and septicemia. Listeria monocytogenes, a food-borne intracellular animal and human pathogen, interacts with infected host cells both prior to entry and during the intracellular phase of infection.

Thank you for your enquiry and your interest.

I can confirm that this antibody has only been tested for Agglutination - but not for IP (immunoprecipitaion) or conjugation. Alternatively, you may be interested in ab20506 which has been characterized for conjugation and ELISA. The price and unit size can be viewed on the on-line product datasheet once you select the home country.

Thank you for contacting us. The Listeria monocytogenes antibody ab20506 has been validated for conjugation to biotin, FITC, and HRP. We have not conjugated it to magnetic beads in house, but it should be suitable for that purpose. Our protocol for coupling antibodies to Protein A or G beads can be found on the following site: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?pageconfig=resource&rid=11415 For magnetic beads, I would recommend following the protocol provided by the manufacturer of the beads. I hope this helps, please let me know if you need any additional information.

Thank you for your enquiry. The immunogen used for Rabbit anti Listeria monocytogenes ab20506 is a mixture of intact and disrupted L. monocytogenes organisms. We have not tested this antibody for reactivity with heat-killed L. monocytogenes cells. I hope this information helps, please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
