Mouse monoclonal antibody raised against Rat Endothelial Cell Antigen 1.
Native purified from peripheral and mesenteric lymph nodes preparation.
The RECA-1 antibody has shown to be strictly specific to rat endothelial cells, pan-endothelium. It recognizes a cell-surface component that is still present after collagenase or trypsin treatment. It reacts with rat heart, liver, kidney, lung, brain, salivary gland, tongue, gut, skin, spleen, thymus, lymph node, Peyer's patch and aorta. No cross reactivity in various tested species was observed other than rat. Immunoblotting has proven to be unsuccessful.
