Mouse monoclonal antibody raised against native CD59.
Native purified CD59 from thymocytes and T lymphocytes.
Theoretical MW (kDa):
This antibody reacts with well defined epitope (W40, R-53) on CD59 (Protectin), an 18-20 KDa glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored glycoprotein expressed on all hematopoietic cells; it is widely present on cells in all tissues.
Flow Cytometry (20 ul in human blood cells 100 ul in whole blood or 106 cells in a suspension) The optimal working dilution should be determined by the end user.
In PBS (0.2% BSA, 0.09% sodium azide)
Store in the dark at 4°C. Do not freeze. Avoid prolonged exposure to light. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
This product contains sodium azide: a POISONOUS AND HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCE which should be handled by trained staff only.
This gene encodes a cell surface glycoprotein that regulates complement-mediated cell lysis, and it is involved in lymphocyte signal transduction. This protein is a potent inhibitor of the complement membrane attack complex, whereby it binds complement C8 and/or C9 during the assembly of this complex, thereby inhibiting the incorporation of multiple copies of C9 into the complex, which is necessary for osmolytic pore formation. This protein also plays a role in signal transduction pathways in the activation of T cells. Mutations in this gene cause CD59 deficiency, a disease resulting in hemolytic anemia and thrombosis, and which causes cerebral infarction. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants, which encode the same protein, have been identified for this gene. [provided by RefSeq
