Gene name synonims
Other gene names
Mouse (Mus musculus)
Also known as
Carcinoembryonic Antigen / CEA
carcinoembryonic antigen, partial; N/A
Each vial contains 100 ug 1 mg/ml purified antibody in PBS + 0.09% sodium azide.
Storage and shipping
Store the antibody at +4 degrees Celsius., or in small aliquots the antibody should be stored at -20 degrees Celsius..
Flow Cytometry (FC), Immunocytochemistry (IHC), Immunohistochemistry (IHC) (frozen), Immunohistochemistry (IHC) (paraffin), Western Blot (WB)
If you buy Antibodies supplied by MBS Monoclonals they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
Human (Homo sapiens); Due to limited knowledge and inability for testing each and every species, the reactivity of the antibody may extend to other species which are not listed hereby.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.Antigens are peptides or recombinant or native dependent on the production method.
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.
Specificity and cross-reactivity
Most polyclonal CEA antisera show cross-reactivity with related antigens such as biliary glycoprotein (BGP) and non-specific cross-reacting antigen 1/11 (NCA). PARLAM 4 does not show cross reactivity, neither with BGP nor with NCA. In immunoblotting the antibody recognizes a single band of 180 kD.; Since it is not possible to test each and every species our knowledge on the corss reactivity of the antibodies is limited. This particular antibody might cross react with speacies outside of the listed ones.
