ab171870 - Rabbit polyclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
May transfer sialic acid through alpha-2,8-linkages to alpha-2,3-linked and alpha-2,8-linked sialic acid of N-linked oligosaccharides of glycoproteins and glycolipids. It can form polysialic acid in vitro directly on alpha-2,3-, alpha-2,6-, or alpha-2,8-linked sialic acid.
Expressed in fetal and adult brain and fetal liver.
Flow cytometric analysis of HL60 cells (right histogram) labeling SIA8C using ab174958 at 1/10 dilution, compared to a negative control cell (left histogram). FITC-conjugated goat-anti-rabbit secondary antibodies were used for the analysis.
