  • Function
    Modifies the functions of natural killer cells, monocytes and granulocytes. Inhibits C5a-dependent neutrophil enzyme release and chemotaxis.
  • Tissue specificity
    Bone marrow cells.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in ELANE are a cause of cyclic haematopoiesis (CH) [MIM:162800]; also known as cyclic neutropenia. CH is an autosomal dominant disease in which blood-cell production from the bone marrow oscillates with 21-day periodicity. Circulating neutrophils vary between almost normal numbers and zero. During intervals of neutropenia, affected individuals are at risk for opportunistic infection. Monocytes, platelets, lymphocytes and reticulocytes also cycle with the same frequency.
    Defects in ELANE are the cause of neutropenia severe congenital autosomal dominant type 1 (SCN1) [MIM:202700]. SCN1 is a disorder of hematopoiesis characterized by a maturation arrest of granulopoiesis at the level of promyelocytes with peripheral blood absolute neutrophil counts below 0.5 x 10(9)/l and early onset of severe bacterial infections.

  • ab131260 staining Neutrophil Elastase in Human bone marrow tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed and paraffin-embedded, antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in Tris/EDTA buffer pH9. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/5000). An undiluted HRP-conjugated mouse anti-rabbit IgG was used as the secondary antibody. Tissue counterstained with Hematoxylin. PBS was used in the negative control rather than the Primary antibody.

  • ab131260 staining Neutrophil Elastase in the HL-60 cell line by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with 4% Paraformaldehyde permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/70). ab150120(1/500) an Alexa Fluor®594-conjugated Goat anti-rabbit IgG was used as the secondary antibody. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI.

  • Overlay histogram showing HL-60 cells stained with ab131260 (red line) at 1/20 dilution. The cells were fixed with 80% methanol. The secondary antibody used was a FITC conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG at 1/150 dilution. Isotype control antibody (black line) was rabbit monoclonal IgG used under the same conditions. Cells also incubated without primary antibody and secondary antibody  (blue line)

  • Overlay histogram showing HL60 cells stained with unpurified ab131260 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab131260, 1/100 dilution) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was goat anti-rabbit Alexa Fluor® 488 (IgG H+L) (ab150077) at 1/2000 dilution for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was rabbit IgG (monoclonal) (1μg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control. Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 20mW Argon ion laser (488nm) and 525/30 bandpass filter.

Vielen Dank für Ihre Email.

Frau Zeeck ist in Ihren wohlverdienten Urlaub und deshalb muss ich Ihnen heute die schlechte Nachricht überbringen, dass wir keine anderen Antikörper haben, die bovine Neutrophile Elastase erkennen.

Leider muss ich auch bestätigen, dass auch unsere Antikörper gegen den Standard- Marker für Neutrophile Ly6G nicht für Rind geeignet sind.

Bitte lassen Sie mich wissen, ob Sie noch einen anderen Marker für praktikabel halten und ich schaue gerne nach, ob wir einen Antikörper haben, der möglicher weise auch Rind erkennt.

Wir freuen uns auf den Review und möchten Ihnen versichern, dass wir auch negative Reviews veröffentlichen und für hilfreich und informative ansehen.
