I'm looking for a telomerase antibody that may cross-react with dog.

Thank you for contacting us.
Unfortunately we do not have any telomerase antibodies tested and known to cross-react with dog. However, we have some telomerase and telomerase reverse transcriptase antibodies that showed some sequence homology with dog.
ab32020, Anti-Telomerase reverse transcriptase antibody [Y182], 75% homology with dog
ab94523, Anti-Telomerase reverse transcriptase antibody, 76% homology with dog
ab63370, Anti-Telomerase antibody, 80% homology with dog
ab130125, Anti-Telomerase reverse transcriptase antibody, 86% homology with dog
Generally we say anything with > 85% sequence homology should cross-react, so we have a few that are right on the edge.
If you would like to test one of these antibodies in dog, you could qualify for our AbTrial where you purchase the antibody at cost, test it in dog, submit your results (positive or negative) in the form of an Abreview, and you receive the price you paid for the antibody off a future purchase.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information of if you'd like to participate in the AbTrial.
