HMB45 - Pigmented melanoma metastases from LN MART-1 - Recombinant human MART-1 protein Tyrosinase - Recombinant tyrosinase protein
Please note that this antibody is an oligoclonal antibody. It is a cocktail of monoclonal antibodies that have been carefully selected. Oligoclonal antibodies have not only the specificity and batch-to-batch consistency of a monoclonal antibody, but also have the advantage of the sensitivity of a polyclonal antibody due to their ability to recognize multiple epitopes on an antigen.
The combination of HMB45, MART-1 (M2-7C10 + M2-9E3) and Tyrosinase (T311) make this quadruple antibody cocktail a first-order pan melanoma screener, and may prove to be a valuable marker for melanoma metastasis in sentinel lymph nodes (see reference 3.).
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab733 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|ICC/IF||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|IHC-P||1/25 - 1/50. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol. ABC method The HMB-45 portion of this antibody will stain with citrate buffer, pH 6.0; however, data shows the MART-1 portion of this cocktail may be negative unless a high pH buffer is used. We therefore, strongly recommend that you do not use citrate buffer for this antibody cocktail. It is sometimes difficult to interpret DAB stained melanomas due to endogenous pigment, therefore we recommend you substitute an AEC or a Fast Red substrate protocol.|
|IHC-Fr||1/25 - 1/50. ABC method.|
ab733 staining Melanoma by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections).
