I recently contacted you about a Rad51 antibody. Attached is the Rad51 sequence. The species is schmidtea mediterranea. It contains the nucleotide sequence and the amino acid sequence and an alignment I did with the human counterpart of it. Please let me know my options.

Thank you for contacting us and for providing this essential information.
As the identity and positives for these species are very similar I would be able to provide you with Abreview discounts should you want to test a product. When choosing which products are best for testing however I would tend to chose those which is either a polyclonal, created from a specific region of the protein (so that you can compare the homology of regions instead of the whole protein) or both.
In this case I have looked over each of the products that we have against Rad51 and can strongly recommendAnti-Rad51 antibodies ab84304 (https://www.abcam.com/Rad51-antibody-ab84304.html) and ab109107 (https://www.abcam.com/Rad51-antibody-EPR4031-ab109107.html as the immunogen for these product had perfect homology. Further, ab84304 is a rabbit polyclonal and the peptide used is available as well.
If you would be interested in taking advantage of 100% Abreview discount for one of these products please let me know and I will send you more information and testing code.
I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
