Polyclonals and antibodies
A Rabbit polyclonal antibody against Mouse Homeodomain Only Protein (HOP). This antibody is labeled with HRP.
Sequence of the immunogen: HOP (Glu11~Asp73); Buffer composition: PBS, pH7.4, containing 0.02% NaN3, 50% glycerol.
Upon receipt, store at -20°C or -80°C. Prepare working aliqotes prior to storage to avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Host: Rabbit; Species Reactivity: Mouse; Clonality: polyclonal; Tested applications: WB, IHC; Concentration: 500ug/ml; Isotype: IgG; Conjugation: HRP
Polyclonals can be used for Western blot, immunohistochemistry on frozen slices or parrafin fixed tissues. The advantage is that there are more epitopes available in a polyclonal antiserum to detect the proteins than in monoclonal sera.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Cloud Clone Corp they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.HRP conjugates are often primary rabbit polyclonal antibodies couples to the enzyme horseradish peroxidase (HRP), found in the roots of horseradish. Also monoclonal HRP conjugates are often used for Western Blot.
Mouse or mice from the Mus musculus species are used for production of mouse monoclonal antibodies or mabs and as research model for humans in your lab. Mouse are mature after 40 days for females and 55 days for males. The female mice are pregnant only 20 days and can give birth to 10 litters of 6-8 mice a year. Transgenic, knock-out, congenic and inbread strains are known for C57BL/6, A/J, BALB/c, SCID while the CD-1 is outbred as strain.
