1) Will this be capable of detecting 2-OH-myristic acid as well, any data available. 2) What about reactivity vs. myristic acid itself, not conjugated to BSA. 3) Will this ab be able to recognize myristic acid on a bacterial cell wall?

Thank you for your enquiry. I can confirm that ab37027 Myristic acid antibody has not been tested for reactivity with 2-OH-Myristic acid. Testing has shown it will not recognize free myristic acid. The immunogen (Myristic acid-BSA) used to raise this antibody was BSA acylated with myristic acid. The fatty acid linkage is similar to that in cell membranes, so the antibody could recognize myristic acid on bacterial cell walls, but that hasn't been tested specifically. I hope this information is helpful to you. Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
